  • Art Handbooks Perspective

    Renowned artist, Ray Campbell Smith has written an excellent introduction to perspective that will be invaluable for all artists.

We then progress to elipses, curves and curvilinear objects such as boats, with plenty of advice on how to simplify difficult shapes. The section on reflections will be invaluable to landscape artists. There is then a section on aerial perspective, detailing the use of tone and colour to create depths in a painting. The final section on stretching the rules shows how unconventional perspective can produce dramatic compositions. There are exercises along the way to help artists to improve their accuracy, and plenty of painted and drawn examples.
