You'll be amazed at what you can do with your non-dominant hand when you put it to work. Pick up a different-colored marker in each hand and draw something--a flower, a face, a teapot. Move both hands at the same time. There are several ways to do this:
It's surprising how easily your non-dominant hand takes to the task when you give it a chance. This little exercise is a great way to warm up in your studio before starting to paint or draw.
- Move the markers alongside each other, going the same direction around the form.
- Move one marker along one side of the form and the other along the other side.
- Move each marker in a completely different direction simultaneously.
