Sunday Sketches

I forgot how hard it is to draw with my left hand lol But since I can't use my right hand to draw, I figured I better start practising with my left in case this is a long term problem. Its going to take a lot of practice to teach my left hand to draw, and I'm not going to kid myself and think I can get my left handed drawings to the same level as the right handed ones, but my sketchy/scratchy style works well for my left hand. My left hand is so tired from drawing this lol

Oh, wow, I am impressed! I love drawing, but I'm not sure I could do as well as you with my non-dominant left hand. Blessings!

Fallingladies said...

Wow, this is great for left handed. I love the sketchy feel!

alarmcat said...

It's not so bad. I like that it's sort of loose and free! Who knows? You may develop a whole new style for yourself that you just LOVE!

Michelle B. Hendry said...

Oh wow! This is amazing with any hand. I love it!

Chris Lally said...

I would never have known this was a non-dominant hand drawing if you hadn't told us. It's really good!

left handed? But I totally loved it. You manage to capture the birds expression ans with the wrong hand. I´m impressed. :)

That's wonderful, I like it a lot! I'm pretty useless when it comes to my left hand doing art, but I think it's smart of you to train your left hand. I know another artist who has done so just to be careful and I think it's impressive.

There was a time I had to start drawing with my left hand due to muscle and wrist pain. It was a fun challenge while I gave my dominant hand time to recoup. Your Corbid drawing is amazing!

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

NatureFootstep,yep left handed :) thank you

thanks Lisa :) you should have another try at it, you never know, might surprise yourself :)

thanks Juana :) its so hard tho not going back to using my right hand lol

Paula Langford said...

Impressive! Whichever hand, I really like the scratchy style of this, suits the bird's face perfectly.

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

thank you Paula :)

My goodness, I think you're doing INCREDIBLY well drawing with your left-hand. I'd be sorry-out-of-luck if I wasn't able to use my right hand for awhile! lol :)
