Left hand drawing challenge – So you think you can’t draw!

I don’t claim to be an avid artist but I like to delve into a good drawing whenever I get the chance. There was a time in my life when my drawing skills remained dormant for decades until for some reason, my creative spark came back. Before this time, I would try to get back into drawing but always failed miserably. I think the single most factor to get into drawing is having confidence.

It was only when I felt the confidence to do something again and again that I was able to cross the threshold of drawing and sure enough I my interest and passion carried me forwards.

This just goes to show that anyone can do it and if anyone tells me they cannot or they don’t have that ‘magical’ quality in them, it’s only because they have not shifted their brains towards that direction. If you don’t believe me, check out my left hand drawing challenge, maybe that will change your mind.

This challenge that I gave myself came about having been curious about people’s understanding and myths related to left-hand people. I was moved by the fact that the right hand brain which tends to the ‘creative’ one controls the left side of the body ie. the left hand. My wishful thinking was that maybe if I practiced with the left-hand I may tap more into that ‘creative’ brain of mine and do much greater things. After I completed my 30 day challenge, I now know that this was all a myth and I explain this with my drawings and blogs shown below. Please follow and let me know what you think!
