Publisher Comments:

Titles in Barron's Drawing Academy series guide beginning students through a detailed training course in the art of drawing. The books open with basic instruction, then proceed to analyze the details that make up a successfully executed drawing. Drawing Academy titles make fine self-instruction manuals and can also serve as textbooks in formal art classes.

LEARNING BY DOING

Constant practice teaches you to analyze the techniques and understand the difficulties you must overcome to produce the effect of perspective and the representation of depth in your drawings. Follow the instructions for each exercise in this book and you'll soon realize that they are considerably easier than they appear to be at first glance.

ANALYSIS

It is not enough to practice. You must also learn to see. The Analysis Section following each exercise shows how professional artists resolve difficulties and achieve desired graphic effects in their drawings. You'll learn to profit from others' achievements and incorporate some of their solutions and effects into your own work.

SKETCHBOOK

The section at the end of each chapter is the sketchbook section. It allows you to analyze the difficulties you encountered and isolate different parts of your overall composition to measure your success as you master the complexities of perspective drawing.

Synopsis:

Each book in Barron's Drawing Academy series takes beginning students through a detailed training course in one specific aspect of drawing. Every title presents a set of "Learning by Doing" lessons, progressively arranged from easy to more difficult. Each lesson advises students on how to analyze their own work and correct mistakes. A "Sketchbook" section following each lesson encourages them to stretch their imaginations, experiment with what they have learned, and develop their skills by trial and error. Perspective Drawing's 20 lessons teach students the fundamentals of perspective, the technique that gives flat-surface illustrations of both indoor and outdoor scenes the illusion of depth and distance. Separate lessons focus on room interiors, building exteriors, town squares, roads and rivers, and wide-perspective landscapes that have distant horizons. Instructive photos and illustrations in color and black and white are presented on every page.
