Whether you specialize in drawing--even cartooning and animation--or prefer media such as acrylic, oil, pastel or watercolor, a good knowledge of perspective is invaluable. It is the foundation of all great paintings, no matter what the medium. Perspective shows you everything you need to know to make objects look three dimensional. Practice the methods of measuring and dividing areas proportionately; then learn how we perceive depth and distance and how to render it correctly on paper or canvas. You will learn the basics and beyond, covering concepts like foreshadowing; casting shadows; reflections; and even one, two and three point perspectives. And once you have a good grasp of the basics, it's easy to graduate to more complex and irregular forms. This comprehensive guide will show you how! 64 page paperback, 6.5' x 9.5'. From Walter Foster.
