My Left Hand


Great hand drawing

Looks great, very difficult to do, I keep failing.

One of my favourite subjects, Gudrun and you did it perfectly!

You make a difficult subject so simplistic, Gudrun. Fabulous.

Wonderful range of tones and textures achieved with minimal lines - a hallmark of your lovely drawings. Super work, Gudrun!

The usual skillful drawing, I like it. I often use my left hand when making a more realistic makes most of my characters left-handed. I bet artists all over the world use their left hand as a model when needed.

Excellent study Gudrun.

You must be right handed Gudrun. Nicely observed.

Thank you Sylvia. This was enough of a challenge without swapping to non-dominant hand, although perhaps I should take that challenge one day ....

A good strong hand you have there!

Hands are so difficult I see you are right handed

Hang on Studio Wall

A5, archival ink. I hope to be able to do larger projects next week ....
