Part One: Line, Ex 1.1

Right Hand, Left Hand

Or the reverse in my case, as I’m left-handed:

Ex 1.1, Stage 1 Left Hand, Graphite

Ex 1.1, Stage 1
Left Hand, Graphite

Ex 1.1, Stage 3 Left Hand, Ink

Ex 1.1, Stage 3
Left Hand, Ink

 

 

Right Hand:

Ex 1.1, Stage 2 Right Hand, Graphite

Ex 1.1, Stage 2
Right Hand, Graphite

 

Ex 1.1, Stage 3 Right Hand, Ink

Ex 1.1, Stage 3
Right Hand, Ink

I hated using my RH, as I had no control at all! Sadly, I don’t actually draw that much better with my LH. On the bright side, there’s nowhere to go but up…

For the last stage, I used my left hand on both. For the sieve, I drew iit in oil pastel, then used a watercolor wash on top. The grated was outlined in masking fluid, with charcoal around it. After the fluid was removed, I added the charcoal inside.

I obviously preferred using my left hand. I find that when I use the graphite, I tend to make more timid marks, which isn’t really an option with other media, such as ink. I liked working at a smaller scale, but I feel that’s probably due to my lack of confidence drawing more than anything else.
