Hey guys! In this video, I continue to learn to draw with my left hand by drawing my awesome nephew Ben in pencil. I critique myself and talk about the proper method of constructing a portrait in classical drawing.

Left-hand drawing can be very tricky, but I see it as gaining a valuable skill. Portraiture is a great way to learn to draw so I chose this method to train my left hand. Subtlety in pencil portraits is so important and shading plays a huge part. Shading with my left hand was a real challenge but that’s why we practice! I have chosen to turn this pencil sketch into a timelapse but I will be showing more real-time drawings for many of my future videos and art tutorials as well.
