Double Dutch: Artist draws with both hands at once

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Some artists draw with their left hand and some with their right, but Dutch artist Rajacenna van Dam manages photo-like accuracy drawing with both simultaneously.

She began drawing seriously with coloured pencils and gel pens at age 16, inspired by an Italian street artist.

Naturally left-handed, she began drawing with her right hand about six months ago.

It has been a success, with views piling up on a YouTube timelapse video of the 25-year-old artist drawing singer Taylor Swift and actress Selena Gomez simultaneously.

Her most photo-like portraits in coloured pencil take roughly 40 hours to complete.

As she draws, her eyes focus on one hand, then the other, as she moves from one picture to the other.

"I can work faster this way.

I don't work twice as fast, but definitely 70 percent faster," she said of her ambidextrous artistry.

In addition to drawing famous people, she enjoys fantasy drawing scenes and also does commercial work, including a current commission for a line of Spanish merchandise.
