I was recently given that Right brain drawing book.
I have discovered things about myself that make a great deal of
sense! I spend most of my time in the Right brain....which is why I
tend to swan around "knowing" things without a logical clue as to how
I got there.
However, the minute I used to pick up a pencil to draw, the darn left
brain kicked in and dastardly things like fleas with rabies would
emerge from the end of the pencil. Much blood sweat and tears would
finally produce something that could be euphamistically termed "in
the primitive style"
However, I am assiduously doing the excercises and WOW I am drawing!!
Actually drawing! That book is potent magic, I can really reccomend
it to those "can't draw' folk.
