Go beyond the horizon with Perspective Sketching. This book offers a command of the basic principles of perspective that is essential to creating dynamic, plausible compositions. With a user-friendly approach, this step-by-step guide will help you master the basics like scale drawing, contour line drawing, linear perspective, tone and texture, and more. Freehand skills like intuitive perspective and concept sketching help you to deepen your technique. Artist and designer Jorge Paricio also includes lessons on working with 3-D modeling in SketchUp and painting in Photoshop and provides a full chapter in blending traditional hand skills with digital media. This effective technique that draws on a broad sense of artistic qualities, coupled with mastering perspective, creates a sketching book unlike any other.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
This book balances the need for detail with the need for spontaneity by establishing a connection between constructed perspective and freehand sketching. The techniques illustrated and discussed in this text enable students to design a space as they are drawing it. After studying the methods for constructing linear perspective, students produce a number of freehand sketches. They test each one with an overlay grid to verify the location of horizon lines, vanishing points, and other key elements. With practice, they develop the ability to find these key points intuitively while sketching, so that they can draw freely and confidently.
A book that teaches hands-on perspective drawing using the projected image method developed by architect and former University of Florida architecture professor Harry Merritt. The book includes detailed instructions on how to generate one-, two- and three-point perspectives. With many illustrations and a Preface by Culicidae Architectural Press editor Mikesch Muecke.

Drawing on extensive experience teaching beginners, the authors overcome many limitations of previous books. Rather than featuring professional work that beginners can't possibly duplicate, they show examples of student drawings, helping students gain confidence and gauge their progress. Avoiding unnecessary theory, math, and jargon, they help students develop an intuitive sense of scale and proportion for creating believable perspectives, and offer valuable tricks and shortcuts throughout. In place of lengthy narratives, they support each lesson with supporting video walking through key techniques. The authors also devote lessons to SketchUp (for blocking out perspectives) and Photoshop (for enhancing sketches). Available in this package is MyInteriorDesignKit! MyInteriorDesignKit is an online supplement that offers book specific resources including flashcards, study aids, images, projects and additional material not found in the book.

Perspective Drawing is a definitive handbook covering all the major concepts of linear perspective. Written in a straightforward style, this textbook provides clear explanations of one-point, two-point, and three-point perspective drawing, and explores the perspective grid, shadows, reflections, plans and elevations, and fisheye and panoramic views. The book employs a highly visual design, with step-by-step illustrations and contemporary examples that connect theory with practice. Perspective Drawing is intended for both the beginning student and the skilled practitioner. Presented in a compact format, this text covers introductory topics and more advanced techniques. The foundational skills of linear perspective are relevant to any creative field, including fine art, graphic design, advertising, illustration, animation, and interior design. Perspective Drawing is an essential addition to any art and design library.

A good sketch starts with good bones. The fourth book in the Urban Sketching Handbook series uses drawings and simple steps to explain the often challenging and overwhelming concepts of perspective in practical and useful ways for on-site sketching. Most books are either too abstract or don't provide enough information that relates to what you actually do when you're out in the busy, wide world about to start a drawing. Where do you start? How do you edit what you see to flatten and shrink it onto your paper? How does perspective work? The Urban Sketching Handbook: Understanding Perspective helps you learn to think like an architect, to draw buildings and spaces by reducing what you see to simple, basic shapes, then adding layers in simple steps, and finally finishing your sketch with detail, tone, and color--in accurate perspective. Full of helpful tips, architect and illustrator, Stephanie Bower even de-constructs sketches to show you how to create them! Once you understand perspective, it will change the way you see the world--you'll see perspective everywhere. Some of the key concepts explored in this volume are: - Basic Terms - Basic Spatial Principles - Types of Perspective - Building a Sketch in Layers - Special Conditions
Hand drawing and sketching are fundamental aspects for visual communication in the design field. Individuals can use these two techniques to improve their understanding of spatial concepts, to provide common language for translation of visual ideas and to assist with developing creative design solutions. This book provides every student with an opportunity to learn hand design drawing skills. Students are progressed from very basic drawing techniques to the drawing of complete interior perspective rooms. The step-by-step instructions, hand drawn illustrations and video demonstrations, provide effective support material for this process. In addition, creative strategies and helpful hints throughout the book encourage students to overcome typical obstacles. Creating realistic drawings in proportion depends on the ability to draw a box in perspective. Therefore, the basic theory of this book uses the box method of drawing. Furthermore, all of the objects illustrated are interior elements, furniture and accessories. Each of the three sections in the book builds upon the other. Part I, Drawing Fundamentals, focuses on techniques for learning basic line drawing skills. It covers drawing various forms and the adding of value, texture, pattern, shade and shadow. Part II, Drawing Interior Elements, demonstrates techniques for drawing furniture in one-point and two-point perspective. It also includes instruction for drawing plants, tabletop objects, accessories and window treatments. Finally, Part III, Perspective Drawing, provides detailed instructions for drawing one-point and two-point perspectives of interior spaces. This section provides students the opportunity to bring together all they have learned in previous sections and apply it to toward communicating design ideas. This edition also contains a new section on Advanced Perspective Techniques, which provides a variety of tips and techniques for creating and embellishing perspective drawings.
