For all those who long to have the ability to draw, to produce an accurate representation of the world around them, Betty Edwards opened that up to them with her classic drawing guide, New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. Now she has produced a workbook containing exercises that will reinforce the five basic skills of drawing, The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Workbook. The right side of the brain controls our creativity, but education in emphasising the left side of the brain's conceptual, analytical manner often causes it to stagnate. Betty Edwards' exercises reactivate the right side of the brain, encouraging a new way to see and bring about a dramatic improvement in the ability to draw. New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is the most successful drawing instruction book ever published. By following the exercises, the artist will discover a radically different way of seeing and thinking; a shift to the right side of the brain, utilising its more intuitive and artistic aspects of thinking. Now Betty Edwards provides a series of simple but effective exercises to follow while practicing your drawing. All subject matters are covered, from portrait drawing to still life, landscapes to imaginative drawing and a variety of mediums are explained such as pen and ink, charcoal and conte crayon. Each of the forty exercises provides an appropriate subject matter, brief instructions and a ready-made format in which to draw (the revolutionary viewfinder which is provided).

MEDIA REVIEWS
An ingenious way to understand and overcome the problem of foreshortening and to grasp the fundamentals of form and relationships. * Leisure Painter *
Does a pretty good job of breaking down the technique of drawing into easily-digested pieces. * Artists and Illustrators *
The workbook contains just enough of Edwards' theory - along with dozens of illustrations - that one need have no qualms about giving it as a gift... does a pretty good job of breaking down the technique of drawing into easily-digested pieces. -- Artists & Illustrators * . *
The first edition of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain... was a landmark in drawing tuition... The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Workbook has been written as a supplement... (The viewfinder) is an ingenious way to understand and overcome the problem of foreshortening and to grasp the fundamentals of form and relationships. -- Leisure Painter * . *
