left hand only – drawing a tree

tree left handed

Today’s challenge was to draw a tree using only a business card (or a scrap of cardboard in my case).  Back to the start of this month, which certainly seems a long time ago.  Difference is, got to do this using your non-dominant hand.

Here is a tree, with a little bench (I wanted to see if I could do that).  To make it easier I just made up the image, working with the easiest way to use the materials.  I can see now that the bench is completely the wrong scale for this tree.

As it has been days since I fired the kiln I then quickly did a few extra sketches to fill the space and set it going.  Never before has it seemed that my kiln was giant.  So, a scribbled singing bird, a feather and a sea scene based on the Cornish tin mining along the coast.

Full enough to fire the kiln.
