Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence: definitive 4th edition : Edwards, Betty By Betty Edwards

I've been wanting to learn to draw for a while. It's been on my list of things to do in my spare time for a while, but I never got round to it. I was initially looking for actually classes that had a teacher as I felt this would be the best way to develop quickly. I never got round to doing that.When the pandemic hit, I found myself spending a lot time indoors and my wish to learn to draw came back. I initially browsed for recommendations on the net and watched some YouTube videos, but realised I lacked a lot of fundamental ability, so I felt the deep and steady approach of learning to draw via a book would be the best route.I eventually ended up on this book, which I believe it was on a list of 'must read' books for budding artists, and I duly started reading it. I was pleased that it starts from zero and assumes little in your drawing ability, and it takes you to something much accomplished. It's a good mix of theory and practical; the theory is backed up by rigorous research with university professors, the practical from the author's years of experience as an artist and in teaching art. It's quite interesting to read even if you're not interested in learning to draw; there it a lot of knowledge shared about left vs. right brain thinking which is something I was vaguely aware of before but this book helped crystalise that knowledge.This is an age where we are always 'on' consuming content in all forms. The knowledge contained in this book is an antidote to the modern day ailment of being unable to switch off. Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence: definitive 4th edition El libro viene dañado. El embalaje estaba perfecto Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence: definitive 4th edition Livro muito interessante. Estou a começar a parte do desenho para ver se funciona realmente! Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence: definitive 4th edition I got both this one and the workbook. It took me 10 days to the point of the after self portrait. Well, as you can see in the picture. The after one was a lot realistic and it got a lot less impact from my own opinion of my facial features (although I have to say neither of them look exactly like me, which is what I hope to achieve.) I enjoyed reading the theories in the book. It totally updated my knowledge about realistic drawing. I am a psychologist myself. Scientifically, I have to say that the theories are fatalistic but some part of them still lack enough solid evidence. However, it does not matter that much, as long as it works and enlightens people! I hope this book can cover on shading. I am so bad at it. The chapters on lines and shapes really improve my observation skills. I am a lot less stressed when it comes to drawing an outline of a real object in 3D environment, but I am still quite stressed when it comes to shading. Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence: definitive 4th edition Where to startI will, try and start and end with some positives.The book has a fantastic section on portraits and drawing of the human head. The detail and the structured approach to drawing a head or a self portrait is impressive and very worthwhile.Sadly so much is included in this book and so much is left out. A huge amount of padding and waffle about psychology, brain anatomy and perception that goes on and on. In fact it is about page 200 before it starts to teach you anything. The author says this is important it is a little bit important but boy is it wordy and unnecessary. Crushingly boring.There is a detailed section on perspective it makes a complex subject even complex and baffling so I gave up and I went off to another book to learn on this topic.Huge topics are missing nothing on Landscape drawing nothing on seascapes nothing on animals nothing on the human body nothing on trees nothing on weather nothing on skyscapes nothing on drawing water.so much not included.It claims to be the classic drawing book.but how can it be when it only teaches about portrait drawing?Do not buy this book if you want to learn how to draw I have no clue what its objective is. Frankly it bored me and I feel I have wasted my money.I was going to give it 4 stars but as I wrote this review it reminded me of how disappointing the book was if you want to learn. It will go on the bookshelf but I wont be bothering to refer to it again.I will try and end on a positive. Sections on portraits are good good section on negative shapes, hatching and lines are OK(ish) Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence: definitive 4th edition
