Many of the perceptive skills needed for drawing are processed by the right brain. Your creative
and insightful right brain plays various roles in drawing, such as:
Seeing abstract connections between lines, shapes, and spaces,
Helping with the process of drawing in a non-narrative context by instinctively seeing
Combining the varied visual components of your drawing subject to form a whole image,
Planning instinctive compositions
Allowing you to better concentrate on drawing by blocking distractions and sometimes
even losing track of time.
The primary functions of your left brain include:
Using mathematical logic to establish proportions, such as examining measurements of
lines and spaces, and drawing grid lines,
Naming the individual parts of the person you are drawing,
Analyzing the numerical and verbal sequences of step-by-step instructions
Keeping track of time frames.
