Perspective In Action - Book Review


Book Description:
Using a fun and accessible graphic novel format, Perspective in Action features 33 easy-to-follow demonstrations to teach artists the major discoveries in perspective. 

Perspective is a fundamental element in the development of art and for understanding spatial relationships, but it is an underserved topic in the world of art instruction. Author and artist David Chelsea takes readers through the major perspective-related developments in history, teaching them how to re-create these same experiments by leading artists in all fields (including drawing, painting, and sculpture). Covering a wide-range of mediums (pen and ink, paint, chalk, digital art, woodwork, and more), Perspective in Action gives readers a more hands-on approach to perspective, as opposed to the usual theoretical presentations found in other books.

My Review:
I think David Chelsea did a great job at bringing this topic (perspective) to life. This is a complicated process and the author has done a great job at helping the reader to learn and understand. Through interesting pictures, teaching the basics and moving on to perspective it helps to understand the process. Perspective is a great tool for artists and this book would be a great source of information to anyone interested in learning more abut this tool.
