What I discovered is that drawing takes me away from everything and I really enjoy the process. If you think you can't draw and would like to learn how I challenge you to get this book and finish it. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
And then it came...and she discovered it didn't really go over drawing cute, fluffy animals and she specifically listed that as the reason she didn't want to do any of the exercises in this book with me anymore.
So I decided to go through it an effort to reclaim some hobby time, and I worked some of these during my son's clinic based therapy sessions, because they could be wrapped up in under an hour.
His target audience for this book really appears to be adults, even though he does teach drawing classes for children. I found his explanations to be done in an engaging way, and well done (I did take some drawing stuff years ago), and his presentation comes across as pretty encouraging and I think he does a good job of making drawing seem accessible to any skill level.
The therapy doodles I made from some of his exercises are attached in the photo, these are some of the earlier exercises. As you can see, I didn't buy fancy paper for this, I grabbed printer paper sheets and the book as I was headed out the door. I think perhaps the greatest benefit of this book is it makes sharpening this skill fun and accessible to anybody working with time crunches.
