Perspective for the Beginning Artist

Perspective is an essential tool for artists of every medium, helping to transfer the three-dimensional world onto a two-dimensional canvas.

Perspective for the Beginning Artist helps artists take that first step toward creating a realistic drawing — learning how to "see" a subject. Beginning with a basic overview of how perspective works, the book introduces aspiring artists to the differences between one-, two-, and three-point perspective, as well as methods of how to measure and divide areas of a subject or scene proportionally.

Using basic lessons of depth and distance, artists practice their own perspective drawings with step-by-step instructions for still life, architecture, and landscapes and apply their newfound knowledge to create realistic and proportionate artwork in any medium.

Perspective for the Beginning Artist covers mastering perspective using the most common beginning drawing tools, including graphite pencil, charcoal, pastels, and ink.
