Описание: A good sketch starts with good bones.
Often challenging and overwhelming to sketchers, the fourth book in the "Urban Sketching Handbook" series uses drawings and simple steps to explain the concepts of perspective in practical and useful ways for on-site sketching. Most books are either too abstract or don't provide enough information that relates to what you actually do when you're out in the busy, wide world about to start a drawing. Where do you start? How do you edit what you see to flatten and shrink it onto your paper? How does perspective work?
"The Urban Sketching Handbook: Understanding Perspective" helps you learn to think like an architect, to draw buildings and spaces by reducing what you see to simple, basic shapes, then adding layers in simple steps, and finally finishing your sketch with detail, tone, and color--in accurate perspective. Full of helpful tips, architect and illustrator, Stephanie Bower even de-constructs sketches to show you how to create them Once you understand perspective, it will change the way you see the world--you'll see perspective everywhere.
Some of the key concepts explored in this volume are:
- Basic Terms
- Basic Spatial Principles
- Types of Perspective
- Building a Sketch in Layers
- Special Conditions

Описание: This book acts as a practical introduction to the subject of collecting British watercolour paintings. There is a lot more to collecting than noting just the price, the name of the artist and deciding whether or not one likes the subject. Many watercolours are either not signed or bear false signatures, or perhaps have been saddled with misleading attributions. The text and carefully chosen illustrations take collectors behind the formal signature on the picture and show them what to look for in it, the idiosyncrasies of the artist, his style and his individual methods of working. Yet even when all the technical points are understood there remains the whim of fashion which varies over long periods and has moved round, ignoring or praising each artist in turn. Without an understanding of the movement of fashion, past collections and ideas on collecting, it would be hard to understand the subject.

Описание: Neil Gaiman is the imaginative wizard behind the best-selling novels "American Gods" (soon to be an HBO series) and "The Anansi Boys," the graphic series "The Sandman," and popular children s books like "Coraline" and "The Graveyard Book." "Neil Gaiman and Philosophy" looks at Gaiman s work through a philosophical lens. How does fantasy interact with reality and what can each tell us about the other? Do we each have other selves who embody different personal qualities? If the unknown influences the known, is the unknown just as real as the known? What makes people truly valuable? In "Neil Gaiman and Philosophy," eighteen philosophers explore Gaiman s best-loved and unforgettable worlds: "The Graveyard Book," a macabre parallel to "The Jungle Book," in which the boy Bod is raised by the supernatural inhabitants of a graveyard. "Coraline," in which a girl neglected by her parents finds another world with an Other Mother who pays her a lot of attention, but then turns out to be evil and won t let her go. "Neverwhere," in which a London man discovers a magical parallel city, London Below. "The Sandman," best-selling comic books in which the Lord of Dreams attempts to rebuild his kingdom after years of imprisonment. "Good Omens" (with Terry Pratchett) treats biblical prophecy, the Antichrist, and the End Times as a hilarious comic tale, filled with sly but good-humored twists and turns. "MirrorMask," where a young circus girl finds that the pictures she has drawn have given her access to a fantastic world of light and shadow, populated with characters who have designs on her. "
