The double vertical line represents the
forearm straight up and down, and the
curved arrow shows the path of either
the baby finger or the thumb, rotating
around the forearm. The forearm is like
an axis, that stays in one place while
the thumb or baby finger of the hand
guide the rotation...
When the curve curves down (down on the
page), it really means the thumb is
painting a curved path toward the chest
parallel to the floor.
When the curve curves up (up on the
page), it really means the baby finger
is painting a curved path toward the
front wall, parallel to the floor.
There is a way to teach yourself
visually what I mean.
Place your elbow on a table with your
forearm up. Put a lamp in front of you
arm. When you rotate your arm in one
place, your baby finger will hit the
lamp, and your thumb will hit your chest...
