4.6 out of 5 stars

on 5 March 2016
Magic! This book is THE best book on perspective for artists - it covers ALL types of perspective: atmospheric, colour theory, linear etc. It explains everything so well that at the end you feel like an expert. Linear perspective is taught so well that by the end you will understand the dreaded 3 point perspective which is brought down to earth. It's all very simple. Art courses teach this subject badly or cannot explain it fully. This book solves that problem. Once you have this book you will have all the creative solutions you need. This is the 1 book you need; you won't need any others. The author is also an excellent teacher, artist and writer. The book is filled with beautiful examples of his art throughout. LOVE IT! THANK YOU!

Not quite finished reading it but would highly recommend. For a complete novice it is an invaluable introduction to perspective with excellent examples. If you buy kindle edition be sure to have a laptop app. It is best viewed in colour and larger format to appreciate the art work.

I have not yet come accross a book that's the definitive tutor for absolute starters.
But this book is a good starting point. It explains the use of colours and how this impacts on depth and effect etc.
A lot of other books make assumptions or just dont explain at all.
This is a good book and its well thought out.

Its an excellent book in breaking down scale and perspective. The colour mixing guides are excellent and I now see how to create 3 dimensional depth in a picture. I drew like a child because I did know how to translate what my eyes saw.

Extremely well presented. Clear and precise. This was just what I was looking for. 1, 2 and 3 point perspective, atmospheric perspective, scale, shadows and reflection are all covered. Every beginner could do with this. The same rules apply whether you use real paint or a digital paint program.
