Learning to draw is very much like mastering a sport or a musical instrument: to advance your ability, you must practice, practice, practice. But in practicing, what, specifically should you draw? This convenient workbook contains the answer: forty basic and new exercises that reinforce the five basic skills of drawing. Each provides appropriate subject matter, brief instruction, sample drawings, a ready-made format in which to draw, and helpful post exercise pointers. In addition to portrait drawing with pencil, you will explore new subject matter - still life, landscape, imaginative drawing - using alternative mediums such as pen and ink, charcoal, and conte crayon. If you are taking a drawing class, have already received instruction through a book or course, or just prefer to learn by doing, this volume of guided practice will be a permanent record of your work that offers the perfect opportunity to hone your skills and expand your repertoire.

Review:

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 .)
