Drawing on the Dominant Eye: Decoding the Way We Perceive, Create, and Learn Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A fascinating follow-up to the beloved best seller Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain - with new insights about creativity and our unique way of seeing the world around us.
Millions of listeners have embraced art teacher Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, from art students and teachers to established artists, corporate trainers, and more - all discovering a bold new way of drawing and problem-solving based on what we see, not what we think we see. In this highly anticipated follow-up, Edwards illuminates another piece of the creativity puzzle, revealing the role our dominant eye plays in how we perceive, create, and are seen by those around us.
Research shows that much like being right-handed or left-handed, each of us has a dominant eye, corresponding to the dominant side of our brain - either verbal or perceptual. Once you learn the difference and try your hand at the simple drawing exercises, you'll gain fresh insights into how you perceive, think, and create. You'll learn how to not just look but truly see.
This remarkable guided tour through art history, psychology, and the creative process is a must-listen for anyone looking for a richer understanding of our art, our minds, and ourselves.
This audiobook contains a downloadable PDF of tests for eye dominance, drawing exercises, a glossary, and select artwork from the book.

As for the dominant eye concept, while interesting, it doesn't bring any value to your drawing skills. So if you're after upping your drawing game, pick a different book, like the Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.
Para empezar, no tiene casi nada que ver con dibujar, con lo cual el título lleva a engaño. Se trata de una serie de datos relacionados con el ojo y la visión reunidos de forma inconexa, con letra grande y a doble interlineado, con lo cual la información, además de poco relevante, es escasa. No tengo claro a que tipo de lector va destinado el libro, pero estoy seguro de que artistas, psicólogos e historiadores pueden encontrar material de mayor calidad.
