I will explain a little bit about the concept discussed in my last blog. Our brain is composed of two hemispheres, each having unique functions. The left side of the brain deals with language, logic, math, analysis; and the right side of the brain deals with visual, spacial, perceptual. If we can shift into the right mode of the brain, our drawing experience will be easier and more enjoyable. The book mentioned in my last blog has many exercises to help in that transition. The left brain wants to "identify" things sometimes making it hard to draw what we see (a right brain activity) instead of what we know (a left brain activity).
