The last life drawing session for this term and today we were drawing with putty erasers. I grew more confident as the day went on and felt happier about finding the drawing in the ground of charcoal we put on the paper. I was also interested to find that I found it easier to draw with the eraser in my left hand and keep the charcoal in my right. I am a bit ambidextrous (is there a continuum on this?!) but I haven’t really done much drawing with the left. I think that I need to try this at home with my own subjects and see how it might develop.
