Series – 1 Page From Every Tutorial Book In My Library #4

(As usual, click any image to see it bigger, in a new tab)

I have 111 books in my studio (yes, I counted them) that are Tutorials,  and I acquired them slowly over about 10 years.  I find that I no longer go to them for inspiration, and decided to get rid of them.  Before I do that, however, I’m going to TRY to do ONE PAGE out of each book.  Wish me luck……

6 Books Down, 105 to go….

Book:The Art Of Perspective, by Phil Metzger

There is a LOT of good stuff in this book, i.e. Vanishing Point, Eye Level View, Values, Atmospheric impact, etc

Page 43-  things get smaller as they recede into the distance

Honestly, if you want to know all the technical ways of indicating perspective, get this book; it is very comprehensive.  For me, it was really tough to find an exercise, as my eyes glass over when I’m reading the details.  This is no fault of the author, it’s just not something that I can get into.

That said, I did a really quick, really simple Field-with-wood-fence scene.  I think it shows that I wasn’t into this one.  But still, one more book that can be taken out of my library, YAY!
