Overview

Imagine perspective without pain—no T-squares, complicated equations or mechanical terms—just simple instructions and hands-on exercises to teach you how to create a sense of depth in your drawings and paintings. Now go a step further—imagine having fun with perspective. With this book, you will. Here Phil Metzger give you clear-cut guidelines in everyday terms—with a lot of friendliness and a little humor tossed in along the way. As an experienced artist, he understands how you work, and he knows that the last thing you need is a lot of rigid rules to tie you down. Here you'll learn techniques of perspective that will help your creativity—not hinder it.

You'll learn how to:

  • Achieve the illusion of depth by gradually diminishing the sizes of—and the distance between—similar objects
  • Use soft edged and less detail on objects in the background to make them seem farther away
  • Introduce depth simply by manipulating color and value
  • Draw from any viewpoint—on either side, above or below
  • Draw accurate angles without complicated measuring devices
  • Use perspective to track down the problem when something you've drawn just doesn't look right
  • Measures relative sizes and add the details that make the difference between a convincing pictures and an awkward one
  • Properly draw roads, paths, streets, fields and streams to suggest depth in a scene and to describe the flatness or hilliness of a landscape.
