The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
A brand-new edition of the world's most widely used drawing instruction book, expanded and updated with more than 50 per cent new material. If you enjoy sketching but feel stuck at a childlike level, this classic handbook will give you the drawing skills you have always wanted. If you are already drawing as a professional artist, it will improve your confidence and deepen your artistic perception. As well as giving detailed advice on how to draw anything you want - including ways to step from black-and-white into colour - Edwards exploits recent developments in brain research to show how drawing skills can be used in the corporate world, in education, and even in problem-solving. Since it first appeared more than 20 years ago, this book has helped millions of people perfect their drawing skills. It can work for you, too.
'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.' --Los Angeles Times
