I’ve mentioned my arthritis problems and I experienced complete frustration last week when we were given the opportunity to meet at a sketcher’s house to draw while rain fell outdoors. On this day my hand was not cooperating and I could not draw without a lot of pain.
Now I like watching other people draw but doing it all day becomes a bit much. What to do, what to do. One of the sketchers laughed and said, “Use your other hand,” to which I said, “I have a hard enough time drawing with this one, holding up my left-hand. But, the more I got frustrated the more I thought it might not be a bad idea.
As it turns out, I’m really horrible at drawing with my right hand. My eyes still worked so I could identify proportions and relationships but getting my hand to put the lines where I wanted them, not so good. Anyways, here’s the results. In case you can’t recognize it, it’s a glass bowl with some fruit in it. I gave up entirely when it came to hatching; as a righty I failed completely at that.
