Inspiration Friday: The Right Side of My Brain
Now I'm reading Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain. I may be 30 years behind the times, but this book is awesome! The basic premise is that drawing (a 'right brain' activity) is a skill, just like reading or math ('left brain' activities), only around adolescence, we stop learning how to draw. (ps. you can still learn!)
So, this week I've been inspired by 3 books to use the right side of my brain, and draw what I see around me...
Note: If you need a little work/study break, but don't have the time to start a sketchbook, you should check out this awesome sketching tool.
I'll warn you though, it's slightly addicting, so pour yourself (or draw yourself!) a cup of tea, set the timer while you sketch, then (if you have to), you can get back to using the left side of your brain.
