My very first drawing
I did this by following the first exercise in Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards, which has collected dust on my bookshelf for eons. It was published in 1979. A high school art teacher, who used it for his classes, recommended it. He confidently asserted that, by following the exercises in the book, anyone could learn how to draw.
Betty updated the book under the title The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and there is also a workbook available called The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Workbook: Guided Practice in the Five Basic Skills of Drawing.
