I enjoyed this warm up exercise. It was simple and a good place to get back into the swing of things. When I was doing the exercise, my hand was touching the paper on it's side. I didn't use my wrist as much. I was tempted to turn my ovals into an 'a' when I lost concentration. I struggled to get comfortable with my left hand.
I am right handed and I did not enjoy using my left hand quite as much. I didn't realise how little control I had in my left hand in comparison to my right. You forget how natural writing and drawing are with your good hand. Using my left hand made me want to write in the opposite direction, until I tried to do that and that was even more uncomfortable. When I returned to my good side my speed was certainly quicker. My left side saw no improvement. All in all a fun little exercise.
