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’re a professional, an art student, or you simply 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. All it takes is a simple 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. It is now updated to consider the technological effects of twenty-first century living.
“Clear, intelligent… practical and sensible… It is an essential beginning.”
“A landmark in drawing tuition”
“This innovative, landmark book should be required reading for all art students.”
“Not only a book about drawing, it is a book about living. This brilliant approach to the teaching of drawing… should not be dismissed as a mere text. It emancipates.”
