Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence

by Betty Edwards - £20.00  Souvenir Press Ltd (2013)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780285641778 | ISBN 10: 0285641778

The expanded and updated fourth edition of the world’s most widely used drawing instruction book. This step-by-step guide to drawing will give you greater confidence in your artistic ability, and enhance your creativity. Whether you are a professional, an art student, or you enjoy drawing as a hobby, Betty Edwards’ practical guide will deepen your artistic perception and provide a new way to appreciate the way you perceive the world around you: a shift to the right side of the brain that uses its more intuitive and artistic aspects of thinking.
This definitive revised and expanded edition includes:
* A new introduction.
* A new chapter on the five basic perceptual skills of drawing that provides a practical step-by-step approach to drawing to give all artists greater confidence.
  * New exercises to help your perception “cross over” from the dominant left-brain mode to the right.
  * Lessons that will help with problem-solving in every realm of life as a creative alternative to the analytic traits of left-brain thinking that dominates modern life.
Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain made art instruction into a handbook for all types of creative thinking, as well as an approach to leading a more artful life, and is now updated to consider the technological effects of twenty-first century living.
