Overview

Millions of people have learned to draw using the methods of Dr. Betty Edwards. Now, in an essential companion to her bestselling classic, Edwards offers readers the key to mastering this art form: guided practice in their newfound creative abilities.

Here are forty new exercises that cover each of the five basic skills of drawing. Each practice session includes a brief explanation and instructional drawings, suggestions for materials, sample drawings, and blank pages for the reader's own drawings. Also provided in this spiral-bound workbook is a pullout viewfinder, a crucial tool for effective practice. While The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain focused primarily on portrait drawing with pencil, this workbook gives readers experience in various subject matter-still life, landscape, imaginative drawing-using alternative mediums such as pen and ink, charcoal, and conté crayon.

For all those who are taking a drawing class, who have already received instruction through a book or course, or who prefer to learn by doing, this volume of carefully structured "homework" offers the perfect opportunity to reinforce and improve their skills and expand their repertoire.

Completing the workbook lessons, after reading the text really helps me get a grasp on what Ms. Betty Edwards presents in her lessons. I suggest buying both books at the same time.

I have used this book to teach drawing and it is wonderful. An absolute beginner may need a little assistance from an artist or teacher. It will also help an experienced artist improve.

I did not have a clue or believe I had the ability to draw, but using this book in conjunction with my drawing class has been beneficial. I love the practice drills. I recommend this book to anyone thinking the can not draw as well as the book Drawing with the Right side of the Brain.
