Every artist needs supplies. With the Drawing Portfolio you don't have to worry whether you've got the right materials because we've already thought of that for you. The contents of the Drawing Portfolio have been designed and put together by Dr Betty Edwards and Brian Bomeisler.
Every participant on the Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain® 5-day course is given a portfolio and it is yours to take home and keep.
Included too are some specific tools that were designed by Brian Bomeisler and are unique to Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain®.
With a recommended retail price of over £55 (exc DVD), the Drawing Portfolio includes all the materials you will need to master the basic skill of realistic drawing.

Strathmore drawing paper is very forgiving. It's easy to correct a line or change your mind without spoiling your drawing. Unfortunately it's not possible to buy this paper in the UK so I import it specially from the USA for the course.
The viewfinder/picture plane comes in two sizes and is a unique tool devised by Brian Bomeisler. It is based on similar tools to those used by artists such as Durer and Van Gogh. It helps the beginning student with composition, seeing negative space and mastering difficult foreshortening in a subject.
The angle finder is particularly helpful for the perspective drawings we do on Day 3. This tool is unique to Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain® and with the propertion finder, was also developed by Brian Bomeisler.
Another unique tool, the proportion finder helps the beginning student check relationships so the finished drawing has the proportions intended from the start.
The Drawing Portfolio is only available as part of the 5-day course and
is not available for sale separately in the UK. However, if you would
like to own the Portfolio and its unique drawing tools, designed
