Drawing in PerspectivePaperback - 2006
Artists can learn how to enter the third dimension with this generously illustrated, full-color guide to perspective. With interesting visual examples illuminating the text every step of the way, it explains how to use vanishing points to create depth; choose one-, two-, or three-point perspective to place an object in the background; apply light, shadow, and reflection to produce realistic images; and make a figure seem elevated or menacing. These are the techniques that the great painters have employed to add motion, time, weather, and mood to their work--and they're now available to everyone. "…very well illustrated and easy to follow...covers all types of perspective problems... the illustrations are fascinating."-- American Artist. "…an excellent introduction…a fine display of step-by-step images."-- Midwest Book Review.
