Non-Dominant Hand Drawings: May 2nd

I saw my hand physician yesterday, and my cast was removed!  It will take me several more weeks, and some hand physical therapy, before the residual pain is gone.  I'm thrilled!  And I only have a few more pages before I finish my Non-Dominant Hand Drawing Sketchbook. This was a wonderful way to stay happy for these 6 weeks.  Thanks again Maureen.  It was a brilliant gift that gave me the push I needed! 

Wednesday was the first day of the Battery Park City Adult Art Programs.  It was a gorgeous day, and the flowers in Wagner Park were wonderful.  NY Harbor was busy, with ferries and other boats zipping around. 

Figure Al Fresco is an outdoor figure drawing session with clothed models, and it was a great way for me to test my recent drawing skills with my non-dominant hand.  I used a Sketch and Wash pencil and waterbrush for these drawings, each of which took about 10 minutes total.

More Poses done before the above ones.  They were 5 minute poses, and I fiddled around with them with my waterbrush for several more minutes.

Golly, look at the improvement. Maybe we would all appreciate our own work if we used our non dominate hand.

I just got my cast after a recent thumb arthroplasty with tendon reposition due to CMC arthritis. Would love to know when you started with non-dominant hand drawings...I am only able to see a couple of them...in pencil...love to see more.
