If you want to learn how to do portraiture or improve your ability to draw in a more realistic manner, then you NEED this book. It is THE best and easiest book I''ve ever read on drawing. In fact, 2 decades ago, an earlier version of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain was THE textbook my college used for drawing 1 and 2 classes. Being a young, broke college kid, I sold my copy back after the end of the classes and I''ve regretted it ever since. Even though I studied art as a major a long time ago, I didn''t keep up with it and my skills have declined markedly over the years. This book and workbook have once again put me on the path to being able to draw with skill, style and without making all the technical errors most hobbyists struggle with (proportion issues, perceptive issues, difficulties with foreshortening, etc.) If you want to learn how to draw what you see, then make this the jewel of your art resources.

I purchased the bundle of book and workbook without reading enough of the reviews. The book and the workbook compliment each other, use the same right brain - left brain theories etc. However you don''t need both to understand her approach or to get the necessary exercises. The book goes into much more depth to explain a concept and then offer exercises to demonstrate the concept. The workbook less depth and more and different exercises. I found it very frustrating to my dominant left brain (inside joke) to read a concept and the purpose of a specific exercise in the book and then turn to the workbook to find that exercise was not in the workbook or another exercise had to be done first with no explanation where it fit with the concepts in the book.

Confused? So am I. Mostly disappointed.

Best book if you want to learn how to draw

One of the best book I’ve encountered to learn how to draw. It was a very good investment. I’ll be looking for more of Betty Edwards book from now on.

A little bummed about the edges of the practice book being ruined, thought it did not affect the book itself.
Still, I’m excited to start learning!

The principle behind the technique is that most of us have been crippled at an early age by feeling that we can''t draw - usually at the stage where we want to move from the symbolic-style drawing of the younger child to the more realistic results a pre-teen or teen wants. So, the book forces you to distract/turn off your constraining left brain which attempts to short-cut the process and "simply" draw what''s there. I''d always imagined that the reason I felt I couldn''t draw was because I lacked the technique - in fact, it appears, the main problem is that I haven''t been able to "draw what''s there" but rather the perception created by my busy-body left brain. When forced to disengage, I''ve been able to produce some really nice results - especially of subjects I''d normally have been two scared to try (my sem-clenched hand, for example). This starter kit contains the original book and a workbook for you to draw in. It also includes a viewing pane which you can cut out, reinforce with some bits of cardboard, and use. Overall, an innovative and effective technique for getting past "artist''s block" and discovering you can, after all, draw.

The textbook is verbose. The Text goes on forever. According to the author both books will stand on their own. Wish I knew this before buying the set. Again according to the Author this workbook is smaller and more portable than the first edition. Again if I had known this before purchasing this edition I would most differently purchased the first edition workbook only. I have no interest in knowing the Author''s ideas on how the brain works hence I would not have purchased the verbose textbook but the workbook appears to be good. The textbook is a very hard read. Where as the workbook is simply laid out and clear. Only wish I purchased the first edition workbook.

I''d seen this book recommended online by an artist as one of the only 3 drawing books he thought were worth buying and so far I''m very pleased with the results I''ve been able to produce. The book begins with exercises which are designed to engage the more creative parts of the brain. I have to admit that some of these seemed a bit weird to me, but I was astonished by the drawing I was able to produce with only the second exercise. I managed a very good rendition of a knight on horseback, something I never would have dreamed I was capable of before. I haven''t delved very far into the workbook as yet, but so far I''m very impressed by the results

Really annoying. I am a first time candle maker and the instructions are in German so it''s difficult to work out how to properly thread the wick.
