Some handy practice

Every now and again it is good to get back to basics and do some drawing practice.  And what is more available than your non-drawing hand!  On the whole I didn't use the eraser, except for on the second hand when I realised that I had stopped drawing what was actually there and had started drawing from memory and assumption.  It builds your confidence when you deny yourself the eraser "out" as you accept the marks as they are.

It isn't just drawing for drawing sake.  I am toying with the idea of including a hand in my chalk painting, but if I don't know what a hand really looks like then I won't know how to simplify it.
