A week ago, we got busy attending a 6 days class on Right side brain drawing 1 and 2. It was so fun. My husband wrote a post about it before here. And I felt amazed of what our right side brain can do. These picture are my drawing progress from 1st day to third day of the Part 1 class. Instructor Ed in Jamestown Community College said that my first drawing is a good example of a Left side drawing. Geesh. Why? Because I draw according to my memory and in symbols. Drawing is best used when using the right side of the brain. The right side of the brain catches more details of the subject of your drawing which is in reality or the subject you are facing at present and not by memory.
We did a couple of exercise before this hand drawing. He let us draw by looking at the details of our hand, at the same time sketching it without looking on the paper. He said he wants us to train our right brain a bit to be not overcome by the left brain's commands.
This was the picture on the last day. We were asked to draw the chair in front of us. It's like a portrait drawing but we just have to draw the outlines of the chair. Negative space inside it. Isn't it cool to know such art?
