New Perceptual Drawing text w/ 400 FREE PowerPoint slides


Date: Sun Aug 11 2002 - 13:04:44 PDT

I have recently written, designed, and illustrated DRAWING FROM OBSERVATION:
An Introduction to Perceptual Drawing. text book. What makes this book
different from the others that are currently available is that it is more
limited. It is meant to be limited, although focused might be a more
appropriate description. This text focuses on the techniques, issues and
concepts that are specific to perceptual drawing. DRAWING FROM OBSERVATION
weaves together two complementary approaches: one rooted in hands-on drawing
mechanics and the other in background theory and/or explanatory material.
Illustrating the text throughout, in addition to fifty master works are two
hundred technical illustrations and two hundred student projects.

The list price of the book is $30.
