Helps the reader gain access to right-brain functions, which affect artistic and creative abilities, by teaching the skills of drawing through unusual exercises designed to increase visual skills. This work is based on the premise that the left and right hemispheres of the brain process information in very different ways. In essence, the 'left brain' is logical, rational using words to describe concepts and able to manipulate abstract ideas, numbers and the concept of time. The right brain, in contrast, takes a holistic approach, sensing relationships and patterns, tends to be intuitive and irrational, and has no sense of time. The book includes many drawing exercises, including 'upside down drawing', 'blind contour' and 'modified contour' drawing. A chapter is devoted to negative space drawing. The author identifies the components of the drawing process as five perceptions: edges, spaces, relationships, lights and shadows, and the perception of the whole (gestalt).
