Someone commissioned me to do this painting for her son who is a Les Paul enthusiast. This is my rendition. I drew it entirely with my right hand (I'm a lefty) and painted it with my left. I'm loving the looseness drawing with your opposite hand gives. It's a great exercise.

It's beautiful! Also, what a neat idea about drawing it with your right and painting with your left. Smiley

gorgeous colour!  What paint medium are you using, I love the depth you've achieved.  and since I can't draw much with my dominant hand in the first place I'm realllly impressed with your right hand drawing Smiley

Thank you!

For depth and texture, I use dry wall compound do a lot of dry brushing. I also used a crackling medium for this one. Essentially, anything I can get my hands on for texture, I will use... Smiley
