right by left

Arches CP 300 gsm, 12" x 9". wolff carbon pencil, water.

this is my right hand drawn by my left hand.

the hand poses with geneva got me thinking about the hands as symbols of role relationships in society.

also i didn't know how well i could do with my left hand. it quickly steadied and progress was slow but controllable.

the lines came out softer than i would usually draw them, so i wet them with a brush to create a wash background.
