To update on my latest Life Drawings; I’ve been working last week on drawing only with my left hand.
And I’m not left-handed.
It’s so liberating – somehow, since I have less control of the charcoal the pictures come out much freer, and the effect is great.
You can see more Left-handed drawings here (just trying out the new “album” feature in blogger):
And this week I worked on not looking at the page while I was drawing.
It’s a totally different style than the left-handed thing, but also really great results.
I’m enjoying drawing so much! It’s giving me a completely different way of looking at things as well.
Here’s my final piece for this week – the model sat for 45 minutes for this one; the longest pose I’ve worked on. I love it because the style is so vastly different from my instinctive drawing, which is very timid. This is so bold and confident.
