Perspective DrawingBook - 2007
Each book in Barron's Drawing Academy series takes beginning students through a detailed training course in one specific aspect of drawing. Every title presents a set of "Learning by Doing" lessons, progressively arranged from easy to more difficult. Each lesson advises students on how to analyze their own work and correct mistakes. A "Sketchbook" section following each lesson encourages them to stretch their imaginations, experiment with what they have learned, and develop their skills by trial and error. Perspective Drawing's 20 lessons teach students the fundamentals of perspective, the technique that gives flat-surface illustrations of both indoor and outdoor scenes the illusion of depth and distance. Separate lessons focus on room interiors, building exteriors, town squares, roads and rivers, and wide-perspective landscapes that have distant horizons. Instructive photos and illustrations in color and black and white are presented on every page.
