Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Smith's (Ray's Top Tips for Watercolour Artists) compact guide distills the complex concepts of perspective drawing down to the essentials. Chapters address perspective basics, drawing curves and ellipses in perspective, aerial perspective, rendering reflections in perspective, and more. A handful of short exercises boosts the reader's understanding of these Renaissance-era tricks of perception and geometry. Most examples included in the guide are done in watercolor, and the book generally assumes a painter's viewpoint. VERDICT This guide is best for beginning artists wishing to render realistic landscapes, city scenes, and still lifes.
