Non dominant hand

Hi I have developed carpal tunnel syndrome in my dominant hand. How do I develop the ability to draw with my non dominant hand?

Hi Skip,

I had severe Carpal Tunnel in both hands. They have pills now you can take, I think they run for 6 days. I took them, about 2 years later I had to retake, but it’s been about 5 or 6 years now and I haven’t any signs of CarpalTunnel. You might look into that.

As to working with your other hand, I can only think to practice.

You should try drawing from your shoulder. Lock your wrist somehow (a brace?). You might have to draw in lesser details at first. If you choose to draw with your non-dominant hand you will find it really hard at first and you probably won’t like it but boy, you’ll see such an improvement with your drawing once you get back to your dominant hand! Either way, it’s a great opportunity to expand. It’s just going to be hard for a little while.
