  1. I always find that my unaccustomed hand draws more truthfully than my educated right hand which draws what it knows to be the way to draw something.

    • Drawing with the unflavoured hand and not looking at the paper produces some very interesting results – particularly if you keep the charcoal constantly in touch with the paper so that you are pushing uphill as well as drawing towards you or drawing downwards. It’s also interesting to do several “laps” of the contour and then compare the results of each lap. I’ll be teaching some more of this tonight ! All the best ! C
