Non-Dominant Hand Drawings April 10 and 11

GOOD NEWS:  After my Xray yesterday, my hand surgeon determined that I would not need an operation on Monday!  I fractured my wrist on my left (dominant) wrist on March 23rd.  It occurred on my way to figure drawing, and I thought it was a bad sprain, so I sketched with my dominant hand, while holding ice on my wrist with my non-dominant hand.  Since my splint, then cast, I've been sketching with my non-dominant hand and having fun.  I sketch every morning after breakfast, both on scrap paper and in my dedicated sketchbook for this project - altered by my friend Maureen.  Here are one of my figure drawings - from right after the fracture, and then several other non-dominant hand sketches from this week.  The drawing of the plant was even done standing, with my sketchbook resting on my cast.  Progress is being made.

Wow, these are lovely. Maybe the upside is that you feel freer with your non-dominant hand. I especially like the Botanical Garden sketch. Beautiful.

Good news that you won't need surgery. Feel better soon!
