In chapter 10 the author uses analog drawing to find meaning. She demonstrates this with the use of 3 of her students' drawings to further develop the language of line. In the first drawing, one could see joy and confidence. In the 2nd loneliness and depression. In the 3rd drawing, the center eye like became the focus, yet with the spikes going upward, the image seem terrifying. She then turns the images upside down and the meaning of the drawing changes. For the first drawing changed to aggressive and contention. In the second drawing, the student was able to see that he might have contributed to his own isolation, or depression when the image was turned. And for the third drawing what seemed terrifying became more animated, lively and the eye was more engaging. Edwards encourages the reader when interpreting analog drawings to be alert to the questions used to help the mind explore for the answers.
I encourage you to buy a copy of Drawing on the Artist Within for a better understanding of your own creative process. Whether you're a master artist or beginning artist, this is an excellent book.
