Perspective 1a - Drawing What You See

Using one eye (like a camera), keeping perfectly still and beginning by drawing the contour of an object, you are on your way to drawing what you see. We continue to add details by establishing reference points usng tangents and intersecting lines.

Beginning this series with how we observe perspective on a daily basis, through using Perspective theory. Students will learn how to observe and draw a single object as if their eye is a camera. The finished drawing will appear as a three dimensional object, with closer parts larger and farther parts smaller.

This practical lesson will give greater understanding to the theory of 1 and 2 point perspective.
