Took a drawing workshop in May 2017 where I learned how to set aside the chatter of the left brain hemisphere and draw what I actually saw from the right brain hemisphere.
On the first day we drew a self portrait while looking into a mirror. After five days we drew another self portrait using the skills that we were taught.
The image shows snapshots of the before and after drawings.
