Your second, upside-down drawing should be a significant improvement over the first, right-side-up one. Problems like scale, proportion, likeness, and detail that were very difficult right side up are merely shapes and relationships when viewed upside down, and so they can be observed and drawn easily, one by one.
You may have just done the first drawing that you liked in years by concentrating on shapes and relationships with the relational right and sending the logical left off to sleep. Fascinating, isn't it? Amazing, even—and that's just the beginning. When you can send the logical left on vacation at will and concentrate on seeing what's there rather than what you thought you knew, you'll find the door to drawing swing open!
