The hands of Jane Seymour
This is a detail from a 1536 portrait of Jane Seymour by Hans Holbein. Posted not for the hands per se, but rather to marvel at the exquisite detail the painter (or his assistants) incorporated into the depiction of the fabric. How is that even possible with a brush - a single bristle? or did painters use pen and ink to render some parts of their designs? Via Large Size Paintings.
