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

A comprehensive guide to mastering perspective in your drawing.

Master essential perspective drawing techniques in this small, simple and straightforward guide by well-respected artist and tutor, Tim Fisher.

Beginning with a fascinating history of perspective in art and the key materials you'll need, the key principles of perspective such as zero-point, single-point, two-point and multipoint perspectives are then explored. Approachable exercises support each precept ranging from simple box diagrams through to complex scenes and allow you to study and practise each technique easily and with gradual difficulty. Through application, the reader can understand how to create the illusion of space and three-dimensionality in their own work.

Myriad subjects are explored throughout the book, including buildings, landscapes, people, animals, boats and reflections. Expert advice on drawing curved objects and inclined planes, a run-down of common mistakes and an inspirational chapter looks beyond a rigid application of the rules to draw your scenes freely and instinctively.

This is a revitalized edition of Drawing Masterclass: Perspective (Search Press, 2017).
