How to Unlock Your Hidden Artistic Talent
'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' is based on the premise that the left and right hemispheres of the brain process information in very different ways. The first chapters of the book are largely devoted to explaining the left/right model, and explaining its relevance to drawing. The stages of development in children's drawing are explored, and the impact of the persistence of the childish symbol-system discussed.
'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' includes many drawing exercises, including 'upside down drawing', 'blind contour' and 'modified contour' drawing. Edwards also explains negative space drawing, drawing perspective from life, portrait drawing, and light and shadow.
