The Hands

Picture These are some of  the hands I drew ready for applique yesterday.

The hands are larger According to the status of the image.

For instance the largest hand depicted in this illustration is the hand of King Edward as he received a contrite Harold who has just returned from France.

Harold approaches his sovereign in an attitude of self abasement its unknown whether out of shame over what happened in Normandy or out of merely conventional deference is far from clear.  (LM) The depiction of Harold with hunched stance and open hands is very dramatic and leaves the viewer  under the impression he is of lower standing.
