Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I have read many books on perspective and studied it at an art college, I believe this book is the most easily understood that I have come across. It simplifies the whole process whilst showing accomplished work." —www.YarnsAndFabrics.com
Library Journal
Civardi presents here a simple, thorough explanation of the basic principles of perspective drawing, the representation of three-dimensional space in a two-dimensional medium. After a brief introduction touching on tools, geometry, and optics, this slim guide covers aerial, linear, and central-linear perspective, two-point and three-point perspective, and the use of construction lines, projected shadows, and reflections. Many finished drawings, step-by-step process drawings, and photographs are provided throughout. VERDICT Beginning and intermediate hobbyists and art students can use this book to learn or improve their realistic-drawing skills.
