    sensitive - highly responsive to feeling sensations
    fingers - digits of the hand

    Without knowing what kind of artist this is, I would say that if he is a musician, then he needs to be able to use his fingers in a flexible manner. Manual labour will make his hands strong but inflexible.

    Thank you Anglika.
    But still I can't get it.
    We have five fingers. Which finger is a sensitive one?

    Re: sensitive fingers

    We have four fingers and one thumb on each hand - they are all sensitive.

    If the artist is a draughtsman, then he still needs sensitive and flexible fingers in order to manipulate his pen/pencil/brush.
