Left handed girl #9

Handedness is the preferred use of the right hand, the left hand, or one or the other depending on the task.

I am right handed in all tasks.
So I challenged myself to see if I could draw a face using my left hand.
 It was fun to do and I learned:
 1. that by turning my paper more often helped me to draw a straight line better,
2. also holding the pencil for shading helped too. 
3. My hand cramped more and got tired faster but that's from not being use to holding a pencil.
4. Also the drawing is a lot "lighter" than my normal drawings so I guess that makes sense that I wasn't pressing as hard with my pencil as I normally would.

It actually came out a great deal better than I thought it would.
Are you impressed? Well, even if you aren't, I sure the heck

Have you ever tried this?

I am entering this in Paint Party Friday :)

Really great result as working with a left hand.
I haven't tried and never would succeed.
She is beautiful and so kind looking.
Happy PPF ♥

Drawing with "the other hand" is not easy! You did a great job, and I am impressed! :>)

Yes I am impressed! I have done this but it has been a long time. Don't think mine would be as good as yours! :)

Fabulous! I once took a workshop where we all drew an entire cityscape with our non dominant hand, using a sharpie, and without ever lifting our pen from the paper. It was really cool and super fun. The work took on a life of its own, and then we colored them in with paint!

This is very well done!

Impressive for sure! One thing I have learned over the years is we compensate for the parts of our body that don't always work as well as we'd like!! Seems as though you adapted very well changing hands! Seems like you have ambidextrous tendencies!!
