About This Class



This is the second, and the last, part of a series about perspective. In this class, we’ll go over two-point perspective in urban sketching. 

We will go through: 

- different types of perspective;

- basic perspective terms and how to recognize two-point perspective;

- how to understand two-point perspective (there you can find some ideas for practicing at the end);

- and how to draw it in different circumstances (with tips, tricks and shadowing matters).

Of course, there will be a speed drawing video at the end where I'll show you how I make a two-point perspective sketch in three steps. 

You can find a few reference photos in Your Project, but it would also be great if you use your own references or, even better, go outside and draw on location.

Enjoy the class!
