I’ve recently been introduced to the concept of double doodling thanks to Jean of the Artful Parent. Basically it’s when you draw/doodle with both hands opposite each other at the same time (you can see a video Jean put together about it here).
I had a go of it and this sneaky little girl came to be. I like how my left hand is sort of the wicked step child of my right (and I i think I like her devious messy ways).
Unlike a lot of artists, I actually am right handed. But I’ve been able to do a few things with my left hand – like I put mascara on my left eye with my left hand rather than using my right hand for both eyes and can sometimes doodle with it. What about you? Right handed? Left handed? A bit ambidextrious?
Either way you should definitely try this. It’s great for activating both sided of your brain…and fair warning…you’ll get addicted! I’ve got a pile of double doodles just lying beside my desk! And I know my kids are going to go nuts for this too!!
