Perspective made simple. How to draw in a realistic style.
Perspective is arguably the most important element of drawing and also one of the most difficult to master. It's what gives drawings dimension and is the key to realistic drawing. Now the best-selling authors of Drawing for the Absolute Beginner are here to demystify perspective, simplify concepts such as vanishing points and multi-point perspective, and make it easy for you to experience success...and have fun while you're doing it.
Tricks and techniques for creating depth and dimension using lines (linear perspective), values (atmospheric perspective) and color. 23 mini demonstrations on how to apply basic principles of perspective make getting started easy. 12 full step-by-step demonstrations, each with a structural drawing, cover a variety of subjects, including interiors, architecture and still lifes. Starting with a simple box to illustrate fundamental concepts, artists will develop a working understanding of how to cast any subject in realistic depth and dimension. This book puts it all into perspective.
