Today’s prompt in the Daily Creative Journal was to do something in a medium I’m used to, but use my non-dominant hand. So, that would be my left.
I always sort of considered myself to have pretty decent motor skills with my left hand. I used to play the viola and violin, that’s all about left-handed motor skills. I used to play the piano as well. Same thing there. But writing or drawing in my notebook, something I usually do every day, with my left hand? As you can see it didn’t go so well. All my left hand does nowdays is holding the coffee cup while my right hand is busy creating something and keeping me alive.
So, this little sketch is what I made today, based on the prompt. Not much, but much harder than I thought it would be. I actually felt a bit downhearted by the whole exercise. Then I found this and it made me feel a bit better. Moo. Also, here are some tips for us “righties” on how to train our motor skills.
Right. I’m off to my glitter cave to do something crafty. With my right hand. Bye!
