Somehow, though, I managed to learn to switch on the right side of the brain on my own, and had learned some of the techniques Dr. Edwards teaches in her book, because it was like coming home to do those exercises. My mother was a trained artist, and an art teacher -- most likely I picked up stuff from her without realizing it, and this book reminded me of what I already knew.
I'm now almost through the book, presently working on drawing full frontal and three-quarter views of faces. I'm drawing from photos I print from the internet, as well as self portraits, since none of my family will pose for me, and I'm finding this works very well.
Possibly the only complaint I have is that I want to do more than just draw faces -- I want to draw bodies and other things as well. I haven't attempted drawing a cat, for example, or drawing anything else -- I think I'm afraid I'll slip back into my old manner of unrealistic drawing. But I'm going to have to do it sometime... maybe today is the day.
Overall, though, if you used to draw or if you've never drawn, this is a great book to get your hand back in with. You won't be disappointed.
is not complicated. It is a matter of wanting to and doing it consistently.
