The Art of Perspective: The Ultimate Guide for Artists in Every Medium

What is perspective? The art of drawing three-dimensional scenes convincingly on a two-dimensional surface. Whether or not they realize it, most artists use perspective every day to mimic what they see when they look at a misty mountain, a narrowing road, or a face partially hidden in shadow.

In this beautifully illustrated, easy to follow book, accomplished artist Phil Metzger starts simple, with discussions on atmosphere, detail and edges, size, values, and shadows. Then he tackles the more advanced topics of linear perspective, explaining why eye level is important, how to locate vanishing points, and the importance of getting angles right.

A "special problems" section dissects stairs, spoked wheels, tile floors, and other difficult to draw (or paint) objects, making their depiction accessible to all.

Appropriate for all mediums, including acrylic, oil, watercolor, and graphite, join Metzger as he demystifies perspective and offers powerful techniques for adding depth and reality to your work.
