This is a workbook that goes with the main text, The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain . It has more exercises than the main text (40 exercises, in fact). This workbook has minimal explanation compared with the main text-- the latter delves a great deal into brain hemisphere function and ways to access those parts that are best for drawing, whereas the workbook only focuses on actual drawing. So I think of the main text as the "teacher text," this workbook as the "student text," and the ...more

Happily there are now endless outstanding books and online courses to teach yourself to draw, and this is one of them.

Here we have forty exercises across a range of subjects and mediums (pen and ink to crayon). Actually, one of my favourite lessons from the book is not one of these exercises but a piece of advice that comes right at the beginning: How to fight procrastination.

We all have these great plans to set aside a day a week or an hour a day to practice drawing, but it never happens – so

This book was about drawing techniques and the art of art. The book helped you with what way you see things and how to put them into perspective in your drawing.
I gave this only 3 stars because of the fact that all the exercises were really tough and I didn’t get much of them and also didn’t get much time to do then.
The best thing that I learned from the book is that when you grow up you will have stopped drawing and you will have the same drawing ability that you had when you were 10/11 or wh

No matter how long you've been drawing, you can always benefit from reviewing your fundamentals. I thought I was fairly good when I started, having an art degree and over two decades of experience under my belt, but the portraits I drew at the beginning and end of the class look like they were done by two different people.
Some people may say that Edwards only teaches you to draw from observation, but that is the foundation on which all imaginative drawing is built.

For my part, I cannot recommend

I found it hard to do alone.

Drawing is fun. A refreshing change from daily activities, mainly at work, which require logical and verbal side of the brain :-)
Although not a good drawer (yet) myself, this activity has given me the ability to see the world differently.
This book provide an interesting method to follow. Another frontier to explore!
