Have moved on from that, to explore the movement of my left hand. When drawing with Sue in class, I used my left hand to draw. It was strapped to her right hand. Then we swapped.

It was exhausting using my left hand. So I thought I would use the oil stick method and stay with Venus. I drew an outline of Venus and traced her onto a piece of paper first with my right hand and then with my left. After an hour or so I had 6 drawings, 3 right and three left and a relief of the last round.

Quite pleased with these.

First the outline.

I think I prefer the left handed drawings. !! Surprise.

Then the relief. This was disappointing. I need to have an improved technique.
