About This Class

Linear perspective drawing is the art of creating the illusion of depth on flat surface of sketch. In perspective all the objects seem to gradually decrease in size when the distance between them and viewer increase. And each of the sets of parallel lines coming out from the objects in the sketch appear to meet at one particular point.

In the first video I'll explain you what is the line of horizon, what is vanishing or melting point and which lines are known as orthogonals or convergence lines. We'll be speaking about two mostly used perspective schemes: one-point perspective and two-point perspective. These two types of linear perspective give us enough freedom in sketching to achieve a good result in big variety of landscapes.

In the two next videos I'll build up examples of landscapes based on one-point and two-point perspective schemes. And, of course, I'll show you some of my tricks and hints for avoiding unnecessary work and trouble drawing landscape.

This class gives you basic knowledge about linear perspective and step-by-step instructions for using this knowledge in drawing.
