Summary

Here is a clear, jargon-free primer on re-creating objects from nature by using perspective techniques. Green's straightforward approach teaches artists and students at all levels how to visually rationalize the differences between form and appearance. He begins with definitions of lines, examines the relative situation of the spectator, and more. Numerous illustrations.
