Keeping yor hands warm while drawing

TranneL Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've lately had a problem with drawing/painting outside because my hands always get cold,
but i really like doing nature sketches (they help me doing more detailed drawings/paintings of places more than anything else), so I wanted to ask how you keep your hands warm during the colder seasons? I suppose gloves aren't the best solution?

get yourself a small electric heater also on top of fingerless gloves as others mentioned.

Fingerless gloved. And doing stretches regularly, as it helps to keep your blood flowing :)

I have a pair of cheap gloves I cut off the tips from, they help somewhat but it's still rather cold :)

Gloves, if they don't bother you to much.

Otherwise, get some cayenne pepper, put a little bit in some lotion and rub it on. It will increase circulation and warm your hands up.

Knit fingerless gloves are great, especially if you can find one that has a pocket on the back for hand-warmers.

Fingerless gloves definitely.

I recommend inexpensive knit gloves with the fingertips cut off (at about mid finger) so you can feel your drawing utensil.
