From the Author

This book is by no means a comprehensive tome and will not teach you everything you need to know about art. It will, I hope, give you a solid foundation from which to spring and give you direction for further study. It will give you the tools, if you are willing to take the time to learn to use them.

The exercises in this book will help you understand the elements and principles that make up the visual language of art. You will learn to see the world the way an artist sees it. When you are actively looking for good design, searching for the building blocks of art everywhere you look, you will find them all around you and make them a part of your visual vocabulary.
