I’m taking my drawing prompts from from Betty Edward’s The New Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain at least for these first few drawings. In her book she suggests drawing Picasso’s Portrait of Igor Stravinsky upside down. No offense to Picasso, Stavinsky or Edwards but NO – it just didn’t excite me in the least. Instead I choose a drawing by Egon Schiele, Femme couchee sur le dos. I’m not sure if I agree with the all the left-brain/right-brain arguments but I am trying to give both sides some exercise on a daily basis.
