In this class you will discover how to draw and interpret linear perspective. Once you are finished with these lessons you will have a good idea on how to apply it to your artwork. Linear perspective can be used on landscapes, still life, figures and many other subjects.

Class Overview

Lesson One:Â In this lesson I will share some ideas for linear perspective basics, an introduction to what you need to know so as we move forward with this series we are on the same page :) In short linear perspective is the illusion of depth on a flat surface. Artists need to understand this because our subjects are often still life, landscapes and interiors that require us to trick the viewer into see depth on the canvas.

Lesson Two:Â In this lesson we will cover one, two and three point linear perspective basics and when to use them. To help you understand these ideas I've included several quick demonstrations and a few examples of how the Master's used these techniques in their artwork.

Lesson Three:Â In part three of linear perspective we will cover how to use two point perspective with a landscape subject. It's important to start understanding how to utilize these techniques with real subjects. In part two of linear perspective I shared one, two and three point perspective using a simple box shape. That was an important lesson because the basic box shape can be used in many man-made objects which is what this lesson dives in to! I hope these tips start to help you develop a keen understanding for linear perspective and ultimately improve your artwork.

Lesson Four: This is a practice reel assignment. You will put your knowledge and skills to the test by creating a series of landscape drawings that capture various linear perspective ideas.

Lesson Five & Six: Here you will see how I completed the practice reel. This will give you something to compare your work to for the assignment.
