How To Draw A Hand With Palm Up From Side View, Free Worksheet

The free printable how to draw worksheet will give the young artist confidence in drawing. Parents and teachers will find many ways to use this in home and class.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Do not get discouraged if the sketch of the hand from the side view doesn't turn out the way you had hoped you are learning and it takes practice. Draw every day and soon you will be a good artist. I have a lot of drawing lessons come back every day and find a one or two to draw.

To print the worksheet above just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later, some printers work better if you first drag the image off to your desktop and print from there. If you have problems see the how to print tab above or try one of the updated files below.

From the side view the hand is like a long triangle, with a shorter triangle for the thumb.
Draw a rough outline using the basic triangle shapes of the hand and thumb- draw lightly so you can erase later.

Inside the rough outline of the hand draw circles for the joints and knuckles and use lines as if they were the bones inside the hand. This helps to make the hand look real. Draw lightly you will be erasing this later.

Between the joints draw large ovals for the muscles of the fingers and the thumb.

Outline around the ovals and circles. Draw one finger in front of the others by drawing the tip of another past it, and drawing a line below the near finger for the one behind.

Use shadows to show the roundness of the hand and fingers. Erase any extra lines last.
