Drawing from the right side of the brain - Experience
Hi people! I found a book called "Drawing from the right side of the brain", by Betty Edwards. It's interesting, as it talks about how the brain works in the activity of drawing. It's also a learning book, it seems to be used for dictating some kind of course with it, I think you get the idea :P
So, I decided to post my experiencie with it, as I'm an Artist in progress, to have a record about it and just... share jajajajajaja
I will talk about "We" as the "audience" of the book, in this case, Me :P
We are first asked to draw 4 preliminar drawings. The Idea is to do something fast. With a bit of detail, yes, but something with 30' of work approx.
1st: A person. With no rules, just a person, from our mind. Yep, it sucked, I did not want to do it, I just didn't felt confortable with drawing from my mind.
I let a few days pass between 1st and 2nd, cuz I didn't have enough time u.u
2nd: A face. Again, no rules, but just from our mind. This time I was more prejudiced. Some of you may know, drawing from my mind was something imposible, all my draws ended up as the 1st or just didn't end up :P . This one I think it's a bit different, it's not good, but It's something
3rd: We must draw our hand. No rules, but I couldn't use an image, it must be watching my hand. Was funny (? I really liked the result, thought it would be worse.
4th: A chair. Same as 3rd. It could be better, but I liked it.
That's all I've done. It should last 2 months approx. So... Will try to post here at least 1 time per week ^^
See you later!
