Non-dominant hand drawings

Using my left hand I made some portraits.
I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the style of my left hand drawings  and the simplicity. Most of all it was fun to do. I wasn't as critical of myself as I usually am.

I used my left hand to sketch the faces than used my right hand to color. The images came from magazines.

It's a great way to silence my perfectionism.

My favorite portrait is the second drawing. The girl with the red hair and braids.
The first red head girl I framed and it she is now looking at me from the wall behind my desk. She reminds me with her uneven eyes that it's OK to make mistakes...  She's still beautiful.
