Review by

A number of years ago I was given advice to 'draw what you see, not what you know is there', and that advice has done me pretty well so far. I guess I was hoping to find a book that built upon that, to give me some confidence with the conceptual drawing I'll be doing over the next few months. This book would definitely be good for absolute beginners, but unfortunately it wasn't quite was I was looking for. But it did include some things I hadn't been expecting in a book about perspective, including aerial perspective and how reflections behave.<br/><br/><br/>
