Drawing Out Your Soul: The Touch Drawing Handbook by Deborah Koff-Chapin
All you need to know to begin Touch Drawing. Touch Drawing is a simple yet profound process where fingers take the place of pen or brush. Paper is placed over a freshly inked surface and, whenever it is touched, an imprint is made on the back- side. Many drawings can be created in one session, each a stepping-stone to the next, guiding one deeper and deeper into the self. Even those who believe they cannot draw find Touch Drawing to be a powerful and fulfilling experience.
This beautiful book provides all the technical and creative information you need to explore the many facets of Touch Drawing. Images by Deborah and her students illustrate the playfulness, power and spirit that can be expressed.
