"EDM #10: Draw Your Hand or Hands"

I messed this one up. 

Wanting to copy the original drawing below that I did a couple of years ago of this older man's hands with the bocci ball, I printed the original out and laid beside my sketchbook.  I didn't notice until I was completely finished that I had placed the original in a portrait position and then went ahead and drew it from that perspective.  Once I posted the ink and watercolor copy, I realized it was incorrectly positioned...so for this posting I corrected the lay-out by putting it on its side. . 

My original sketch is a graphite drawing, for this challenge I copied it here in ink and watercolor.

This is GREAT! Hands are SO hard - the worst, next to feet.

I'm not sure which one I like better, truly. The original hands look gnarled a bit. LOTS of character. The new one, I like the long, graceful fingers. Excellent job on both.

I like the graphite hands best. I love graphite and have no idea why I'm always messing with ink. Shoot me.
