Perspective for the Absolute Beginner cover

PERSPECTIVE FOR THE ABSOLUTE BEGINNER (2017): Both magicians and artists entertain with illusions. While the magician uses smoke and mirrors, the artist's platform is a two-dimensional surface to convince the viewer that the art appears three dimensional. This book explores the different forms of perspective including linear perspective, atmospheric perspective, and depth through color use. You'll learn what tools to use and how to use them, the terms and principles related to perspective along with tricks and techniques to create depth in your artwork through lines, values and color.

Included in this book are 22 mini step-by-step demonstrations along with 12 full length step-by-step demonstrations. Whether you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned artist, this book will help you to apply the many interesting aspects of perspective.
