I've continued to work from Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. This popular teach-yourself-to-draw book focuses on ignoring preconceived ideas of what things look like, and instead to focus on what the eye actually sees. It transitions through the basic elements of art (line, shape, form), and emphasizes detachment from the artistic process to discourage verbal thought.

This picture, a drawing of the view down the hallway from my bedroom, emphasized sizing proportion, sighting angles using their relationships to horizontal and vertical lines. There is little detail, but the scale and perspective seems fairly accurate.

This drawing is a copy of a famous Picasso portrait. This was drawn upside down to detach from the preconceived ideas about the human form and relationships between lines. This is honestly a fairly accurate reproduction of the original, which can be seen here: 

The following is a drawing of my hand using foreshortened perspective through a drawing plane. There are some glaring flaws (like the angle where the pad of the palm meets the wrist), but the foreshortened effect is an improvement over my previous ability.

This image was drawn by focusing on the negative spaces surrounding an object. Only after I had drawn what "wasn't there", did I focus on the details like highlights and shading. There are a couple of issues, but overall this is a major improvement, and accurate as far as representing the original object.
