Quack Quack

(left handed sketch #163)

A smew duck, the male is very pretty mostly white bird.

 (left handed sketch #164)
An attempt at drawing a flying seagull, could have been better but still have problems with perspective with my left hand.

I swear if it doesn't stop raining here soon we are going to have to build an arc, snakes welcome, wasps not.


  1. I very much love your birds, the duck is so sweet looking!

  2. You do these so well ~ lovely sketches ~ ^_^

  3. Very nice, your left handed art is improving so much!

  4. I'm in awe every time I see your left-hand sketches Jennifer. You draw brilliantly. That seagull is flying high :D

  5. I wouldn't be so hard on myself about perspective with your left hand. Most people wouldn't even attempt what you're doing. Your sketches are nicer than you think.
    Hoping your rain moves along to a place where it is much needed.

  6. thank you carol :)

    thanks christine :)

    thank you Neesie :) the wings looks a bit small for the pudgy gull lol

    Was a nice day today Chris, so got a bit of sun :) and thanks, its good practice but frustrating sometimes when things dont turn out right :)

  7. I have seen lots of artists using their primary hand not able to do anywhere near as good as this.

  8. Jen, your sketches are phenomenal ... and with your non-dominant hand!!! I am gob-smacked [Had to use that term - love it :) ]
    Thank you for your comments! My students are keen, as am I.


    PS - we would be happy here to take that rain.

  9. thanks Julie :) I still need a lot of practice tho :)

    thanks Kathryn :) havent heard gob-smacked for years lol :)
