Perspective – Book Review

This is the perfect introduction to drawing and using perspective.  It is a very practical guide, providing help and assistance in mastering the subject.  He starts by looking at the basic geometry surrounding buildings and how these can be drawn. 

Most books tend to focus on buildings but what makes this book special is the way he also looks at the way you can use shadows and reflections to create perspective.  Using watercolors to demonstrate each technique, the instructions are easy to follow. 

It is a very inspirational book with lots of exercises encouraging artists to practice the various techniques.  At 48 pages, it is a short but very intense book covering a tremendous amount of material.
