Drawing on the right side of the brain




A while ago I started the book "Drawing on the right side of the brain". I came up to an exercise I didn't want to do and instead of skipping it I stopped doing the exercises. Anybody would think I had an exam at the end of the book. Tonight I have decided to continue on doing the exercises I am interested in. I thought I would show a few of my drawings so far on my blog.
I am finding the book and the workbook really encouraging and I am learning a lot.

Lots of love from Susan in Australia

Good for you! I not only have the book but I saw her at an art goods show and bought her kit that she uses in workshops. Hopefully I can buckle down and do some hard work with it this summer. Very nice work here.

Well done for persevering, Susan. I read DotRSotB in 1992/1993, and as I recall, I managed all the exercises. I dug them out recently from my old bedroom while on a trip to my parents' home - it was great fun to see not only my upside-down version of the Picasso drawing, but also the stuff I started drawing off my own bat once the exercises started giving me more confidence. Have fun with it!

Susan, you are doing fantastically well!! Excellent book to work through. My favorite exercise is the drawing upside down, it's proven to be the most helpful aid for me whenever I'm trying to draw a difficult subject.

Wow this is really neat!

I did those exercises from that book, too. I was amazed at how well I did using her techniques. You've done an excellent job, especially on the horse.

WOW....well done indeed, Susan! The book, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, is what got me started into drawing....it's a great book, very helpful with good techniques. Another book I love is The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your drawings ~

I did that drawing and thought it was difficult and it took a lot of time. But it does look like what it is supposed to.
