Drawing and the brain

Some time ago I read a book which tried to teach people how
to draw. One of the tricks it suggested was to look at a
portrait upside down while trying to copy it; that way your
brain would not have been carried away with the "global"
details of the picture. But for me it didn't work: even when
watching the picture upside down, I could still recognise it
as a portrait of JFK. So I'm still as bad as drawing as
before. What does this tell about my brain?
