Painting Challenge: Paint this ref photo with non-dominant hand

Get ready to push your boundaries! 

In solidarity with our moderator, Jennifer Elaine, who recently sprained her dominant wrist and the many people who are stroke survivors, we challenge everyone to paint the same reference photo with your non-dominant hand.

Dare to step out of your comfort zone.  Let your non-dominant hand guide your brush, unlocking a whole new world of art.   Paint the tulip reference photo below with your non-dominant hand.  Draw or trace the outline with non-dominant hand too.
