Perspective is based on the use of converging diagonal lines to create the illusion of depth. Many beginners and amateurs artists consider the perspective method to be a complicated subject. However, using it correctly is important for understanding the volume of objects and the planes in a landscape—especially in urban landscapes where this approach to representation becomes indispensable.
This book demonstrates that the principles of perspective are easier to apply than you might think. With basic ideas and some essential guidelines, students will become familiar with the purpose, reasons, and rules for perspective as it is applied to drawing and painting.
