Leraning to Improve Drawing Skills

4 minute study with non dominant hand

""When you put your pencil in your left hand, it could be that it makes the connection more directly to that part of the brain responsible for physical coordination and spatial perception," Witta-Kemph said. From Article: Left Hand Drawing Improves Skills

I do find that drawing with the left keeps me loose and my focus is different. I am not thinking about how to capture the figure and the proportions but draw what I'm seeing.

On Suite 101 they describe it as "The brain consists of two hemispheres. Each sees the world in a different way. The left hemisphere views things in their parts, it is logical, analytical, assigns labels to things and endeavours to make sense of the world. The right hemisphere sees holistically, is illogical and sees things as they really are."
