From the Back Cover:

IF YOU WANT TO DRAW WELL BUT THINK YOU HAVE NO TALENT, THIS BOOK WILL UNLOCK THE ARTIST WITHIN YOU AND OPEN UP A NEW WORLD OF CREATIVE ENJOYMENT.

Everybody has artistic talent and can be good at drawing. You only have to tune in to the creative, intuitive and artistic side of the brain – the right side – and you will be able to draw accurate and imaginative portraits, landscapes, still lifes…Betty Edwards's teaching techniques are based on recent brain research which shows that after early childhood most of us develop our left, herbal hemispheres at the expense of the visual side.

By setting you simple tasks which only the right side of the brain can perform, Betty Edwards heightens your awareness of shape, colour and form, makes you see more clearly and intuitively, and within a remarkably short time, gives you the pleasure and satisfaction of being a competent artist.

Already an established classic, this revolutionary book now contains much exciting new material. For the first time there is a section on drawing in colour, with twelve pages of full-colour illustrations; additional information on using lights and shadows enables the artist to create three-dimensional effects; and a new section shows how drawing techniques can improve your handwriting. There are new examples of before-and-after drawings by students, new exercises, and much more.
