The amateur artist faces many challenges. To Len A. Doust, perspective is by far the most problematic. With his trademark humor, the author/artist turns his expert eye toward that "dreaded, horrid word." In a clearly written how-to guide on mastering the art of perspective, he carefully: • describes the roles of lines, boxes, and circles• provides shortcuts for visualizing shapes and forms• incorporates thirty-three plates of helpful illustrations One of the most concise introductions available for beginners, this practical volume will be an important addition to any artist's resource library.
