Experiencing technical difficulties

A problem I have come across in my progress is that there seems to be an inherent difficulty in portraying the sensitivity of touch through the format of a .gif image. Even when the image transitions smoothly, I'm finding that the images maintain a static aesthetic. This is proving difficult to capture a gentle sort of feeling. 

I have continued the creation of .gifs in this manner; however, I am wary that I may need to take a new direction with them. My two most recent .gifs can be found here and here.
