Amazing! I was astounded.
on 3 June 2002
I am a painter but my drawing is something else entirely. (I have managed with basic outlines and leaving out details) but draw as many other adults do like a child.
My friend lent the book to me because she knows I paint. Although it held no interest to me initially (because I can't draw) I thought I would read it.
Well I couldn't believe what I was drawing within minutes on the first day, and the second day was even better. I am on the third day now and although not the greatest artist I am certainly a hundred times better than before. I see things differently and in detail and I would now draw even the most complex item or scene with no worries.
The trick is not to learn how to draw with this book. The trick is to SEE by turning of the left side of your brain which usually tells you what you think you are seeing. This is easier than it sounds with some simple tricks to fool your brain into letting the right side do the work.
When you can SEE things you can DRAW them. So you don't need to learn to draw at all. You always could. Believe me and the book. You will definitely improve in hours and may find that you have a talent you didn't have before.
Highly recommended. I only wish I could show you my before and after drawings.
