Left-hand drawing challenge for 30 days
Most of us have a dominant hand that we write with and carry out delicate tasks etc. This is the case with Artists who usually use their dominant hand to draw and paint. Due to this, I setup a unique challenge to myself and to draw with my least dominant hand which is my left-hand.
Each day, I would do one drawing with charcoal, pastels on paper and recorded the 30 day event.
I believe the exercise would be useful to beginners and they can see the whole progress through the 30 days from the video link below.

The 30 day challenge drawing with my left hand proved not only to be a great experience but also an eye-opener. I feel that it answers some of the latent questions why some people find it hard to draw and also opens up interesting questions about creativity…
My 20 day assessment of the Daily Left Hand drawing challenge has answered some of my earlier questions regarding this exercise and introduced some more questions. I am very happy to say that I am lucky to have started this 30 day challenge as it has shifted some of my thinking regarding learning a new skill. I am sure it can benefit you in whatever skills you undertake!
The 10th day of my left hand drawing challenge has brought about some interesting points from the experience. I am beginning to feel less and less awkward and already feeling comfortable and confident with the progress that I am making.
Left handed drawing can be tough for people who are dominant in their right hand. My daily challenge of drawing with my left hand provided some deep insights and opened up interesting questions.
Based on my previous last 3 days drawing, I thought I would try something different. In today’s daily challenge, I thought I would draw an apple using one charcoal pencil. This time focusing on some important features such as the water drops on the apple.
Drawing is very stimulating and highly rewarding for me. Recently with my right arm playing up a bit, I thought I would try to work with my left hand which I have never done before. Since this provokes many questions on the subject of drawing, I thought I would make a series out of this and call it a Left Hand Drawing Challenge. You will see all my daily uploads in Youtube.
