Draw Your Way to a Younger Brain: Safari

By Anastasia Catris, Anastasia Catris
Authors:
Anastasia Catris
Illustrated by:
Anastasia Catris
Misplacing your wallet, forgetting where you parked your car, or getting your friend's birthday wrong: these are just some of the many common memory slips we all experience from time to time. And such cognitive lapses don't just plague the elderly: the most common worry of people over 40 is memory loss. A recent study by Newcastle University, featured on BBC news, showed that art therapy has greater benefits than puzzles and exercises when it comes to improving memory function. Engaging the brain in new and creative ways may be the key to a sharper 'younger' mind. Helping to enhance your brain's cognitive function through art therapy techniques, this book contains 30 intricate line drawings of safari animals, with space on the opposite page for you to copy the illustration and some helpful hints to start you off. There is also the opportunity to colour in and to create some of your own illustrations as you progress. Gradually becoming more challenging, every page will help to stimulate parts of the brain that are vital for memory retention. With this book you will draw your way to a younger brain.

Drawing The Human Body

By Giovanni Civardi
Authors:
Giovanni Civardi
Every artist longs to portray the human figure in all its expressiveness and sculptural beauty. To do so requires a well-balanced mix of science and creative vision, an understanding both of anatomy and each individual body¿s emotional eloquence. Overflowing with the sketches that capture a wondrous repertoire of angles and positions; pointers that, one by one, focus on all the details of the body; and close-ups that show emotion-packed expressions as well as precise musculature. Through his own expert illustrations, the author shows the male and female body from front, sideways and back, revealing typical proportions, and showing projections in frontal, lateral and dorsal, each part of the skeleton and each muscle. He comments on morphology of the head, neck shoulder and more; and offers a plethora of gestures and action positions.Every drawing is proof of how technique and imagination come together to create superb art.

Designing With Perennials

By Pamela J. Harper
Authors:
Pamela J. Harper
Make your selection guided by questions that pinpoint the right plants for your lifestyle: Can you spend the extra time required for deadheading, staking, or spraying? Do you want fragrance? Will your selection give you a strong sequence of blooms throughout the growing season? Then, will your garden feature beds, borders, or plantings in front of the house or alongside a path? Or a bog, water, or rock garden instead? You¿ll uncover sound guidelines on siting and sample garden plans for a range of alternatives. The core here, receiving extensive attention, is a chapter on colour, with time-tested combinations designed to work especially well in most common zones.
