How to See It and How to Apply It
Matthew Brehm - All books by this author

Here’s a hands-on guide to perspective that’s for anyone who wants to draw or paint—in any genre or medium. It’s partly about learning how to draw a set of straight lines that meet at a point, but it’s not filled with lots of dull, dry theory (although it does explain how it all works). Instead, it gives you tons of fun, practical exercises, and encourages you to play with them, so that learning how to draw in perspective is effortless and easy. Put your observational skills to the test with:
  • Image Quizzes: take a pen and draw in all the vanishing points onto the book itself
  • Perspective Chambers: draw objects onto an existing scene, keeping it all in the right perspective—sort of like 3D doodling
  • Unique exercises with more than 100 vanishing points to figure out
By the time you’ve completed this book, you will have a keen understanding of how perspective really works. Plus, you’ll learn how to look at the world around you, see what’s really there, and spot where those invisible straight lines may be located. It will become like a sixth sense to you—one that will add depth and meaning to all of your artistic pursuits.

From the reviews:
“This detailed yet comprehensive drawing guide accurately depicts the myriad applications of perspective through simple explanations and the extensive use of relevant graphics. It clarifies how perspective can be utilized as the underlying structure to an image and yield extraordinary results for both interior and exterior scenes, regardless of medium, subject matter or style. Techniques for observation and sketching to scale are a nice touch, as are specifics about delineating various geometric forms. Though anyone could improve their visual acuity with this user-friendly book, art students will find it indispensable.”
