' Drawing on the Artist Within' is the fascinating new book by the author of the world-wide best-seller 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain'. Here, Betty Edwards expands the ideas of her first book – that anyone can learn to draw – and focuses on how you can enhance your artistic self-expression. Basing her work on the latest research in dual brain function, she shows you how you can:
• Stimulate your ability to think creatively
• Sharpen your powers of perception and bring imagination into your everyday life
• See aspects of yourself and your personal and business relationships as you have never seen them before
• Bring new, more effective skills to your problem-solving
Profusely illustrated with instructional drawings and the works of major artists, 'Drawing on the Artist Within ' is both an inspiration and a practical guide for everyone, which shows you how to release your true creative potential in all areas of your life.
