I wondered if anyone would care to comment on the results of my "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" exercise #1 results.
I appear to have received exactly the opposite expected areas of conflict/error in the illustration. I did the exercise twice, with specific different thought process.
EDITED to add:
The fascinating thing about Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is that it exploits several different neuroplasticity phenomenae that we have only just begun to recognize in the last few years of neuroscience research.
In illustration #1, drawing #1 was done "without thinking about it", just looking at the shape of the profile to copy; drawing #2 was done while trying to see both the profiles, and the vase at the same time, as distinct, different shapes. The error lines are preserved, no eraser used.
In illustration #2, drawing 1 was done "without thinking about it", just looking at the shape of the profile to copy; drawing #2 was done while actively thinking about the anatomical features, their function, placement and structure, naming them and mentally-verbally describing them as I drew.
This appears to produce the opposite expected "conflict"; in the book, the author states that the result I get from Illustration #1, Drawing #2 is the result I should expect from Illustration #2, Drawing #2.
Can anyone comment? What's wrong with my brain?
