I finally got all the material and did the first three sketches, the one from memory being the worst. I draw by sight, not by faith of memory.

I took quite a break in my reading, but the drawings from the chapter on edges & contours still look interesting. I've included graphic records occasionally in my journal. I'd like to sketch more often and better. I hit a wall when I didn't have a #4B drawing pencil.

Art--be it graphic or literary--in school interests me, so Edwards advocacy for drawing during the transition of child to adult resonated with me (68-70). I believe by "symbols" (71) she really means "representations." Ultimately, the movement from realism to expressionism will allow students choice. No exercises in Chp. 5 but Edwards makes a good case for the impulses of art making.

Although I did not experience the L-R problem associated with sketching the ambiguous face-chalice figure on p. 50, I do find myself agreeing with the premise that a "cognitive shift" does help my sketching. I'd done the exercise in Chapter 4 of sketching Picasso's "Portrait of Igor Stravinsky," so I substituted a Ralph Steadman sketch of Freud, and the exercise worked again.

No drawing exercises in Chp. 3, which I miss. A lot on left- or right mode brain. The mythology of this doesn't interest me, so this was a tough chapter to get through.

Hit the "clear plastic" and "viewfinders" and had to stop until I can get to an arts supply store. Time to switch to fiction.
