Perspective, Depth & Distance

Clear, practical, and easy-to-follow, this book draws the reader into understanding the principles of perspective using simple techniques, tips, and step-by-step demonstrations.

From sketches to final paintings, Geoff Kersey shows how to incorporate linear and aerial perspective, how to create depth and distance with light and shade, and how to breathe a sense of realism into a picture. Flat, dull landscapes can be changed into vibrant scenes full of life with sunlight and shadows, distance can be enhanced by placing warm colors in the foreground and cool colors in the background, and foreground detail and soft background images can lead your eye into a picture.

There are many more tricks that can be used to create an illusion of a three-dimensional scene, as Kersey illustrates. Fields, trees, roads, rivers, bridges, buildings, harbors — whatever the subject — all require knowledge of perspective, depth, and distance.

Geoff Kersey is an experienced watercolorist and is in high demand as a teacher and demonstrator. He lives and works in Derbyshire where he has a studio, and he exhibits extensively. He has created two watercolor videos and contributes to various art publications.

Author — Geoff Kersey.
