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.

Being a creative designer is often about coming up with unique design solutions. Unfortunately, when the basic rules of design are ignored in an effort to be distinctive, design becomes useless. In language, a departure from the rules is only appreciated as great literature if recognition of the rules underlies the text. Graphic design is a "visual language," and brilliance is recognized in designers whose work seems to break all the rules, yet communicates its messages clearly.This book is a fun and accessible handbook that presents the fundamentals of design in lists, tips, brief text, and examples. Chapters include Graphic Design: What It Is; What Are They and What Do They Do?; 25 Basic Rules of Good Design; Form and Space-The Basics; Color Fundamentals; Choosing and Using Type; The World of Imagery; Putting it All Together? Essential Layout Concepts; The Right Design Choices: 20 Reminders for Working Designers; and Breaking the Rules: When and Why to Challenge all the Rules of this Book.

Описание: The Discobolus, the Venus de Milo and the Parthenon frieze are sculptural masterpieces of worldwide renown. But our appreciation of them as "works of art",
enshrined in museums, is far removed from the way in which the ancient Greeks saw and perceived them. In order to fully comprehend Greek sculpture, it is important to recreate the
conditions of its production and consider those who commissioned, used and viewed it, as well as the sculptors themselves.
This text re-examines the contexts in which
classical statuary was made and displayed, and restores its former cultural significance. In its original, intended setting, Greek sculpture not only looked quite different - massed together
or elevated on pediments and friezes, and brightly painted - but it also served surprising social, religious and political purposes. Illustrated with diverse examples, this text draws upon
literary, historical, and archaeological evidence to explain the techniques of the manufacture of Greek sculpture, tracing its production over a period of some 700 years from the eighth
century BC to the Hellenistic period.

Each religion featured here is illustrated by the outstanding aesthetic achievements for which it is known, and it concludes with a helpful timeline that puts all the religions included into chronological context.
