Quotes by Betty Edwards
'Given good instruction, I firmly believe, anyone can learn to draw well.'

'Like reading, drawing seems to require instruction.'
'Drawing, like reading, improves thinking.'
Do you think you are good at drawing?
There are five components to good drawing
1. The perception of edges. This is also called contour drawing.
2. The perception of space. In art this is called looking at the negative spaces.
3. The perception of angles and proportion. This is called perspective.
4. The perception of lights and shadows, sometimes called shading.
5. The perception of the image as a whole.
