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.

I had been drawing for years, and it was a great delight to read that I was approaching drawing in the way the book details. However, the most useful aspect of the book to me was that it enabled me to understand what I was doing unconsciously and therefore be able to communicate these skills and ideas with others. Often when you can do something naturally, you do not know how or why you are doing things! This book explains it all. I have now been using the techniques and ideas in the book to teach children as young as four years old to draw in a more realistic and artistic style. The results are quite amazing. Any teachers out there like myself would find this book extremely useful and fulfilling.
