Sunday Best

Over the Christmas holidays I obtained a collection of scans of family photos. In this photo I am about ten years old, in my Sunday best on our way to church.

I have been working through a drawing instruction book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, by Betty Edwards. The left brain is specialized in verbal tasks; it is analytical, logical, temporal, and linear. The right brain is better at visual tasks such as drawing, enlisting spatial and relational skills. Edwards offers techniques that encourage right brain engagement, such as drawing upside down. I drew Spidey upside down. I like the result. Here is a fun little action video I made from the picture.
