Archives for posts with tag: Wrong hand

There’s been a lengthy heat wave. I’ve been hot and bored and ├╝ber restless. I drew my right hand and then I drew my left hand using Caran D’ache Neocolor II watersoluble crayons on a piece of Strathmore Bristol. I wanted to see how the paper handled the water I would use on the crayons. Then I painted the background with some craft acrylics that were on the boardonironingboard studio annex – just squirted them on the paper and then used a brush. Next iPat took over with some collage, and color enhancement using ArtRage and a bit of this and that in Sketch Club. Not in that order.

Wrong hand and Usual hand got a bit carried away. I’m going to have to keep an eye on them. At least until I finish this book.

This is what happens when I’ve got nothing to do. All of a sudden I notice my coffee cup and what is going on with it. This one was tricky. I had to study the “pose” because there was some hand switching business necessary which also required iPat to jump from one side to the other. Everything cooperated and we carried it off. Wrong and Usual hands celebrated boisterously by sliding a dizzy iPat back and forth.

The next day the park was bustling with activities – many softball games, teeny tiny people having a soccer tournament, Octoberfest, and more trees.

I couldn’t find anyone to sketch in the library so, since the park was nearby, I drove in to see what I could see.

A bunch of trees.

I took an extended break in between two exhibitions – member preview of the new Egyptian exhibit and the Kongo exhibit – and miscellaneous side excursions and had lunch in the cafeteria.

Surprisingly, I was still able to find my way around the museum with my trusty annotated map from July. I even located a ladies room without a queue.

As usual, the place exhausted me, and I was so happy that the bus directly to Penn Station came along as soon as I reached the bus stop.

I actually stood in the Prints and Drawings section in the Met last Thursday, eyeballs fully dilated, stylus in the other hand, and copied a John Singer Sargent charcoal drawing. I added the info that was hanging on the wall because, although I can draw with the other hand, it would take me a whole day to write out all the info with the wrong hand.

Here is a copy of the original drawing which I took from the Met’s website. Glorious. I didn’t want you all to miss his pencil strokes.

I had just finished the Thank You drawing and noticed that the woman was getting ready to leave. I couldn’t help myself. I started drawing really quickly and much looser and was able to finish lickety-split I like both drawings but maybe this one more.

You would think so, right? But they also sent me a gift card. To a book store.

So, I went out, found an unoccupied chair with a view, and drew them another Thank You picture.

Still wrong hand drawing.
