There is a comprehensive introductory section that covers the history of the technique, as well as an outline of the materials needed for the projects.Simple basic exercises are followed by eight more elaborate projects to develop the essential technical skills. Each project is photographed step-by-step, through which you'll learn and put into practice some of the tricks that artists skillfully and playfully use to manipulate spatial perception and mimic reality. There is also a gallery section showcasing the work of Leonor Rieti, as well as the work of some students who have tried these projects at home. This book offers essential information and projects for anyone who is intrigued by optical illusions, hyperrealism and the role they play in art.
