Large Hands

Here are two of Dick’s larger works. The distinctive aspect of these and most of Dick’s full length portraits, especially with men, is an emphasis on large hands. I remember asking him why he did this and he told me that he had learned it early on as a way to solidify the model and bring it to completion. It gave the illusion of proper proportions.
