These translucent hand paintings blend landscapes to create surreal images. The artist Kevin Corrado creates a 'transfer series' of images that depict different hand gestures. These hands show an empowering crossover of landscapes in the background as its main theme. These landscapes range from mountains, oceans or forests where the hand is partially blended in with the background.

This blending effect creates an illusion of integrating hands within terrestrial features. The location of each painting also shows the hand descending from above the clouds. the dripping paint on the fingertips drop down on the location to match the same color of the background. These hand paintings make for an intriguing optical illusion that makes the eye drawn to the center when viewing the image.
