Overview

Drawing in Perspective by Oliver Striegel

Create landscapes that invite you to walk right in, still lifes that offer you a bottle of wine, and a portrait that looks ready to speak! Here's how the masters-from the Renaissance greats to M. C. Escher to Andy Warhol-use perspective to create a sense of motion, time, weather, and mood. Fully illustrated, this practical guide explains the effects of changing point of view; using vanishing points and one-, two-, and three-point perspectives; and applying light, shadow, and reflection to create realistic images of our three-dimensional universe on a flat piece of paper.
