As implied in recent posts, symptoms of my repetitive motion injury have returned, so righty is on vacation for a while... In the meantime, working with the mantra, "increase flexibility while maintaining strength." Today I used my left hand to sketch this ink wash portrait of Sant Ajaib Singh from a photo taken in the early 1980s.

In art class we've been experimenting with textures using acrylic molding paste. As a demo, I dry brushed this imaginary portrait over a variety of textures made with a nail, a matchstick, some paper towel. Real MacGyver stuff. Her shimmering shirt is iridescent gold acrylic over a hasty medium-rare sienna (all atop a black base coat throughout).

And here's where I stopped working on my Batman and Conan drawing a couple of weeks ago when my arm requested leave... Can't wait to get back in there and finish up...
