Sunday Sketches


Two more left handed sketches. I find its easier if I just focus on the basic shape outlines, it is much easier to have the drawing look more like what it is supposed to. I guess if I think of learning to draw originally with my right was probably the same, its less frustrating not having a drawing turn out exactly how I would like.  I just don't have the muscle memory for drawing with my left like I do with drawing with my right.

But you are getting more muscle memory every day - and you don't have to train your eyes this time - so should be faster. Honestly, I think it's awesome what you are attempting to do. If I had time, I would join you, but I've gotten myself into too many projects at the moment. Carry on Jen, it is coming along nicely!

You are getting better every day at this!

I agree, you are getting better every day and I like the linework when you use your left hand = so much energy showing on the paper in the marks you make. Great stuff!!

thanks Rose :) that is very true about eye training, didn't think of that ;0 I have too much going on too, but need the practice if my right arm is going to be messed up for awhile :/

thanks Christine :)

thank you Rhonda :) glad the energy shows :D thats a great comment :)

You have improved your accuracy, but have not lost that loose-ness that is so appealing!

Serena Lewis said...

I think they look great! Love the loose, scribble-style of sketching!

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

thanks Chris :) I don't want to lose the looseness but would like to get a bit more detail to the sketches

thank you Serena :)

I'm really feeling encouraged to try out drawing with my left hand, also my non-dominant, after seeing your progress for all these weeks. Blessings!
