Author(s): Philip W. Metzger

Art - Techniques

Many artists are intimidated by perspective. However, creating an illusion of depth in your work is actually far easier than colour or design when explained correctly.With this book, readers will learn how to create perspective on a flat surface using a variety of mediums. Starting simple, the book covers the theory behind perspective and gradually introduces more and more challenging subjects. Before long, readers will be taking on such complex scenes as stairways, curves, and non-rectangular objects. First published 2007.
