Do you use DrawScope with one or both eyes open?

It’s important to use it with both eyes open. One eye receives the image of the subject through DrawScope while the other sees the clean surface where you are going to draw. It is your brain that mixes the two images and creates an optical illusion. When you close and open the eye that receives the image through the DrawScope, you can hide or show the actual image that is overlapped on your drawing. 

Does DrawScope work for lefties?

How large of a drawing can I make?

There is no size limit! DrawScope works with the Sight-size method. Everything you put next to your painting can be visually transferred. The bigger the picture, the farther back you should go. There will be a moment when you will not reach the canvas with your hand. At that moment, you have the option of using a tripod to establish your point of view, and move freely.

What is the Sight-size method?
