Portrait Painting (Non-dominant hand challenge)
1w
Gino Datuin
I was challenged by a friend to make a painting using my non-dominant hand (left hand). This was the outcome. I chose to leave color out of it to make it a little easier. Truthfully, it turned out better than I expected. I thought it was just a good day in the studio, but now that I think about it, it was probably because I had to focus a lot more using my left hand. When painting, it's easy to tune out and go through the motions and enjoying the process. However, it still requires to be present when making decisions on the canvas. In this case, I was forced to think about every decision because it was more difficult than what I was used to. Even though it wasn't as fun to paint with my non-dominant hand, I think I needed that extra push. Has anyone else tried painting with their non-dominant hand?

Interesting! Never tried using non-dominant hand to paint... maybe I should give it a try. I think the effect of this is like that drawing up-side-down practice where you focus on abstract shapes rather than the muscle memory to complete a stroke.
