LEFT HANDED DRAWING



While I am waiting for my art supplies to return from Minnesota, I decided to do some contour drawings. This time I decided to try using my left hand (non-dominant) for a few. I was surprised how much control I had. I may spend more time drawing with my left hand. An interesting challenge. You might want to give it a try.

Oh, very cool! I love your contour studies. They reveal an amazing amount of the personality in just a few lines. I'm going to try this!

The control and dexterity you have with your left hand is remarkable, Myrna. This is a great exercise, and could easily be applied to creating work that is more intuitive.

Hi Myrna, Wow! You have great hand-eye coordination. I find it intriguing to see how you can achieve character and "likeness" with such loose, flowing line. Something for me to think about!

wow that better thani could do with my dominate hand.. ive heard if you use the non dominate hand .. when you switch back the dominate hand really goes to town.. are you finding that to be the case?? some teachers reccomend you do always that as a warm up, before drawing...


also congrats on the award with the san diego watercolor society.. just saw your painting!! way to go!!
