Whether you feel you have little talent and you doubt you could ever learn, or you enjoy drawing but have not been able to get much beyond a childlike level, this book will give you the skill you have always wanted. If you are already drawing as a professional artist or artist-in-training, it will give you greater confidence in your ability and deepen your artistic perception.

This 20th-anniversary edition of 'Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain' has been dramatically revised, with more than fifty per cent new material, including:

Recent developments in brain research that relate to drawing. New insights on the use of drawing techniques in the corporate world and education. Instruction on self-expression through drawing. Ways to step beyond black-and-white drawing into colour. Detailed advice on applying the five basic skills of drawing to solve problems.

    I actually bought this book as a gift, however, I have been in classes where the tutor has used this as a work book.
