I took the author's"Good Bones" workshop 2 years ago. Stephanie really made a difference in my understanding of perspective! Since that workshop, my drawing has improved. Now this book really makes a difference for me. People learn best in different ways and I learn best by reading. So this book is just what I need to continue to remind myself of the principles of perspective drawing. I will return to it regularly. Her illustrations of the concepts are clear and exact. The sketches illustrating her text are both beautiful and instructive. I highly recommend Understanding Perspective, especially if you are struggling with that concept. I know I will return to it again and again.
