Wow. What a neat book. I have taken art appreciation courses in college and I have taken the traditional "draw whatever the heck you want" classes in high school. So, I don't have any training per se. I draw, but I never really read art books because I worried that instruction would take away from the spirit of my message--if that made any sense. But, I like my little kid wanna-be surrealist drawings and Edwards was never blatantly anti-any form of art, so I went along with it. Edwards is really all about seeing things and observing carefully. I think that's the cool thing here: I look at things differently now.
Warning: This book is not one you skim through at all. Take your time. If you borrow it from someone, um, you probably won't be able to give it back to them for a while.
