The knuckle and finger joints have raised paint in order to catch and reflect light. An old and cheap trick that still works well. Shallow light catches the edges of the paint and creates a ghostly effect as shown. Many edges of the paint on this artwork are strategically raised to catch light. The texture of the painting surface is also visable in this photo.
