When I first read this book, I was in another drawing class — Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. It was suggested by my instructor that I read this book before doing an analog drawing research project with my daughter’s 3rd grade class. I was fascinated by how emotions could be seen…especially within evoking emotional responses with master’s artwork. I also found this book helpful with understanding the concepts within drawing, the creative process, and problems solving. Unlearning first how I was encultured to believe I had to be “talented” or “gifted” to know how to draw. I am thankful I listened to my own intuition about my desire to learn how to draw, and there was support and validation that EVERYONE can draw, someone has to show you how. This is that book that will help you build the fundamentals first to go along with any drawing practice.
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.
