About This Class

Creating the right composition and perspective has been a never ending challenge for any visual artist. Whether one is doing a sketch or a painting, clicking a photograph, or making a film, the right composition and perspective can make or break the visuals. 

The right composition helps create the right emotion and interest in the viewer's mind, while the right perspective makes the picture look "right". Together, composition and perspective make the difference between a also-ran artwork and stunning artwork.

In this course, we will learn: 1. "Rules" of composition 2. Components of perspective 3. How perspective changes with size and distance 4. One point perspective 5. Two point perspective 6. Adding "jazz" using perspective.

A lot of info and tips on perspective, would have liked to hear more on composition but overall really great class!
Interesting class - I learned a lot about perspective in drawing! Looking forward to using some of these techniques in future drawings :)
