BOOKWORM MEDAL “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” Betty Edwards

RIGHT BRAIN VS LEFT BRAIN

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards is based on the idea that the left and right hemispheres of the brain process information in very different ways. While this theory has become somewhat outmoded, it is still a useful model to explain the way we function.

In essence, the ‘left brain’ is logical, rational using words to describe concepts and able to manipulate abstract ideas, numbers and the concept of time.

The ‘right brain’, in contrast, takes a whole approach, sensing relationships and patterns, tends to be intuitive and irrational, and has no sense of time.

The book includes many drawing exercises, including ‘upside down drawing’, ‘blind contour’ and ‘modified contour’ sketch to train your brain!!
