More Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Another exercise is to draw your hand without looking at your paper. Just get lost in the shapes and let your hand draw what you see. Below is my first try. I got pretty lost. The exercise was five minutes. I used a timer. But I was already done after 3 minutes, but I had to keep going. So I kept drawing, but on a new section of hand. You can see where I lost or changed focus.
I took another try, this time vowing to keep going the whole time and stay focused. I did, but still got lost. Or at least, I lost the scale. I stayed with the outline, but the outline blew up like a balloon.
The last couple of times, I kind of got a better sense of space, stayed with the contours without getting too far away from the actual shape. There’s still a lot of weird empty unfinished fingers, but you can imagine where it should be. Some of them look like plump worms.
