Today we are going to
have a look at some basic perspective theory. There are three basic perspective
categories: one point, two point and three point perspective. There are
actually other types of perspective (four and five point perspective) but you
need to get really comfortable with those three basic categories first before
you move into more complicated compositions.

This week we will go
through one point perspective.

Literarily anything you
draw into paper follows perspective rules. Let’s start!

Draw a straight horizontal
line. This is called the “Horizon Line”. This is the line where sky and earth
meet.

Now draw a dot on the
Horizon Line. This is called “Vanishing Point”. It is the point where all of
the lines of the objects you draw will meet.

e.g.

Draw a rectangle.

Now from each corner
draw all the lines towards the vanishing point.

Depending on how long
you want your shape to be, draw the rest of the shape. The lines are parallel with
the original shape.

There you go a
rectangle in one point perspective.

As an exercise you
can take numerous rectangular objects and put them in perspective as shown below.

Next week we will go
through two point perspective.

See you next Sunday!

Panos.
