'Think you can't draw? You absolutely can. Buy a copy of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards (in print since 1979 for good reason) and read it properly - no skipping straight to the exercises - before sitting down with paper and pencil and following instructions. You will quickly amaze and delight yourself. Hands down the best and most life-enhancing thing I've done in lockdown'
