Project Description

1. Draw two or more boxes in one-point perspective as we discussed in parts How to understand one-point perspective 1 and 2. You may choose how tall and wide your boxes will be and how many of them you want to draw. Just try to experiment.

2. Draw a circle, a diamond shape and a wave shape in one-point perspective. If you think the wave shape is too difficult for you, don’t worry, you can skip it. Maybe you would come back later for it.

3. Draw a street view in one-point perspective. 

I would love to see your shape exercises before you start to draw a street, but feel free to show all the tasks and the same time. 

If you don’t understand something, don't hesitate to ask questions in the Community area.

Good luck!
