Rise above

This weeks challenge at Divas was to create a tile using bales with the non-dominant hand. It's not one of my best work but, yes it did get better by the end of it. After drawing the string with the left hand i realized that drawing the lines wasn't that challenging as much as tangling the bales. I found that my concentration was even more profound and even though the end result wasn't so great and the shading was - well no words to describe, there was more peace and calmness. Hmmmm something for me to reflect on.
Hope you guys have a great weekend. Enjoy!!

  5. A very thoughtful piece - and I love the small part in the lower left hand side - I don't know if you intended it - but it looks very contoured and puffed. Nicely done.

  6. Nice line work. I like the string that you used. Besides that struggle, I think there were positives gained by many. Isn't that the way it works in life?
