Hands in Paintings and Drawings

Although Koolen had a solid education in anatomy at the National Academy of Amsterdam he considered drawing hands challenging. He had the opinion that hands express a part of the nature of a person.
He has continued to maintain his skills by practising drawing his own hands occasionally. See the sketches.
