Perspective is one of the most difficult skills to master—even for seasoned artists. In this book, distinguished artist and art educator Victor Perard shows clearly how the use of such simple techniques as vanishing points and perspective lines can add a dramatic depth and dimension to any drawing. Sixty-two accompanying illustrations have been chosen to demonstrate a variety of problems the artist may encounter when creating a picture. Perard urges students to study them carefully and then apply the principles they represent when making their own sketches. He also provides some striking, illustrated studies in foreshortening and two-point perspective.
