Full Description

Giovanni Civardi has built a formidable reputation worldwide for his skills as both an artist and a teacher, and here he provides a unique introduction to the art of drawing perspective and structure. There are sections on aerial, linear, central linear, two-point and three-point perspective as well as chapters on using construction lines, projected shadows and reflections. We also learn a little bit about how perspective and structure have been used throughout the history of art. Finally the artist shows through his own superb drawings how the techniques and principles learned can be put into practice. The focus of the book is very much on Giovannis exquisite work and the accompanying text provides concise, clearly written explanations of the subject, including materials, equipment and practical considerations, and the authors in-depth knowledge of the subject is apparent throughout. This is therefore an ideal introduction to drawing perspective, for the absolute beginner, as well as a source of information and inspiration for artists of all abilities. Contents: 1 X 64 Page Paperback With 100 Black & White Illustrations Author: Giovanni Civardi Author Bio - GIOVANNI CIVARDI was born in Milan in 1947. While training to become a sculptor, portrait artist and illustrator at the Free Life-Study School of the Accademia di Brera, he also studied medicine and surgery. For over a decade, he worked as an illustrator, producing commissions for newspapers, magazines and book covers. During frequent trips to France and Denmark, Civardi put on one-man exhibitions of this work and pursued his interest in studying the relationship between medical anatomy and the human form as depicted by the artist. His experience gained from teaching anatomy, life drawing and portraiture in schools and institutions over many years has led to the publication of numerous books in which Civardi's experiences are brought into focus.
