Product Description

A fully revised and updated edition of the essential companion to Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain--over half of the exercises are new!

Millions of people around the world have learned to draw using the methods outlined in Dr. Betty Edwards’s groundbreaking Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. In this workbook, the essential companion to her international bestseller, Edwards offers readers the key to truly mastering the art of drawing: guided practice in the five foundational skills of drawing.
 
Each of the forty carefully constructed exercises in this updated second edition is accompanied by brief instruction, sample drawings, ready made formats and blank pages on which to draw, and helpful post-exercise pointers. You will explore wide-ranging subject matter—still life, landscape, imaginative drawing, portraits, and the figure—and gain experience with various mediums, such as pen and ink, charcoal, and Conte crayon.
 
Learning to draw is very much like mastering a sport or a musical instrument: once you understand the basic skills, you must practice, practice, practice. This brilliantly designed and practical workbook from a world-renowned art teacher offers the perfect opportunity to improve your skills and expand your repertoire.

About the Author

Betty Edwards speaks regularly at universities, art schools, and companies. Now retired from her position as professor emeritus of art at California State University in Long Beach, Edwards received her doctorate from UCLA in art, education, and the psychology of perception. Dr. Edwards has been profiled on the Today show and in Time, among other magazines and newspapers. She lives in California.

If you can only buy either the textbook or the workbook, get the workbook. I bought both, and really like them. It is an incredibly helpful program. The textbook has a lot of theory and background that is interesting and helpful, but somewhat repetitive. The workbook has enough instruction and explanation to stand on its own. If you have limited funds to spend and can''t get both, you will be absolutely fine learning to draw with just the exercise book. I can''t say the same for the textbook, because there are about 4x as many exercises in the exercise book as there are in the text. If you can get both, and enjoy learning the theory, go for it! It''s a nice set. But since I was wondering when I bought both whether they were really needed, I wanted to confirm that I think I would have been fine with just the workbook. (Note, my textbook is the 1999 edition, bought used and with slower shipping. I didn''t wait for it, and started right away on my workbook, which is this 2012 edition, bought new. It makes a great journal of your progress if you draw right in the book.)

My newly-retired husband needed a hobby, so what could be better than drawing? Paper, pencils, and he was set, or so I thought. He couldn''t draw, so I bought him this book. It has daily assignments that gradually took him from stumbling novice to solidly mediocre, and it kept him engaged for hours without bothering me. He enjoys his time drawing so much that I think it''s time for his to step up to crayons.

I bought this book and discovered that without the actual book, it makes no sense and offers no help. As such, it was grossly overpriced, so I bought the Kindle edition of the actual book, because it was very cheap. Didn''t do it for me. I AM a word person, so having some stranger aggressively order me to just shut off that part of my brain and be someone else doesn''t work. I also don''t respond well to self-help approaches, which is the language this book uses. I simply didn''t feel motivated to follow Ms. Edwards''s orders and instructions. Too aggressive, too perky, too dismissive of everything that does work for me. Luckily, I''ve found plenty of books and tutorials by art instructors of both high school and university level, who use language very effectively to communicate visual concepts through words as well as demonstration -- because thesis + antithesis = synthesis; it doesn''t have to be right side or left side, you can be allowed to use your entire brain -- so all is well.

If you do well with self-help books, you might find the original book helpful, and then the workbook might be of use to you.

I first purchased this classic over 30 years ago. My wife went from a pretty good artist to James Audubon in very short order. The background info on brain hemisphere function is priceless for anyone seeking clearer insights into communication, as well. We loaned out the first copy until it disintegrated, and have gifted literally dozens since then. Kudos to Ms. Edwards for shedding light on the real secret to artistic (re)production.

Do not buy workbook with the book.
Reviewed in the United States on September 18, 2018
The workbook doesn’t go with the book. They are two different editions. The exercises from the book are completely different from the ones in the workbook. Very confusing. Makes workbook a waste of money.

I am just starting to draw; this book has taught me skills that not only apply to drawing but also to problem solving and creativity. I have purchased many other drawing instruction books and none teach the fundamental skills to be able to actually draw, in my opinion: how to see. Once we learn how to observe and quiet our left brain, anyone can draw anything. This book focuses on teaching those skills. It teaches the science behind drawing.

Yes, the paper is a bit thin, but it''s an exercise book. I did greatly appreciate and enjoy this book. My daughter was recommended the textbook by a tutor at college, and she let me know about it. Having read some feedback on Amazon, I chose the drawing workbook, rather than read the theory. Before Betty Foster''s book, I took a long time to draw and needed to make a lot of corrections, which held up painting. It was good fun and challenging working on the exercises and there is a definite improvement in my drawing. I find I''m looking at things differently now: feeling less daunted and more excited.
