Book Description

"...by far the best primer [on perspective] I’ve ever seen. If you have other books, throw them away and buy this. You won’t regret it."
- Artbookreview.net

Learn how to master perspective and create convincing drawings of the three-dimensional world with the help of artist and teacher, Tim Fisher.

Every aspect of perspective, from zero- to multi-point, is explored and explained in simple terms that everyone can understand. In addition to landscapes and buildings, you will learn how to apply perspective to people, animals, boats, reflections and more. There is also expert advice on drawing curved objects and inclined planes, a run-down of common mistakes, and an inspirational chapter on moving beyond a rigid application of the rules to draw freely and instinctively.

Clear diagrams and finished drawings are included throughout, along with numerous exercises so that you can put your new skills into practice.

This is a revitalized edition of Drawing Masterclass: Perspective (ISBN: 9781782211112).

Leisure Painter

Updated from the popular Drawing Masterclass series, Drawing Perspective, by Leisure Painter consultant, Tim Fisher, shows you how to create convincing drawings of three-dimensional spaces with easy-to-follow instructions. Zero-point, single-point and multi-point perspective are all covered alongside measurement, proportion, scale and varying perspective, with chapters devoted to specific subjects: people, animals, boats, shadows, reflections, skies and seas, inclined planes and curved perspective. The book concluded with chapters on how to overcome common mistakes and how to free-up your drawing style to draw perspective intuitively. Numerous exercises throughout the book encourage you to work through stages to practise what you have learnt. 


Amazon Customer Review

This book is excellent as it explains perspective in fine detail. I am following the instructions in some of the chapters and learning so much.


Amazon Customer Review

This book is incredible. I highly recommend it. Easy to read with detailed, clear and simple guidance. The accompanying drawings and sketches are plentiful and clearly show what is being discussed. The author covers areas such as single-point perspective, multi-point perspective, varying perspective and other essential instruction for novice artists like myself such as placing shadows and reflections and people perspective. I have quite a collection of drawing and painting books and this is one of the best. I love drawing buildings but they have always seemed a 'bit off' but I know by following the rules in this book I will be able to achieve the outcomes I want with my art work
