Lesson 1: Guy At The Window

Length: 50 minutesAuthor: Val BarclayComplexity: Easy

Perspective Lessons

This is where we start having an understanding of Perspective. Image 1, which I have labelled ‘The Guy at the Window’. With this illustration, we can begin to see how it all works and you are going to be part of the process and start to produce Perspective Drawings.

You are going to place yourself approximately two feet from a window where you can clearly see the outside world, does not matter if you have window panes, your window will be your Picture Plane, as per the illustration below, The Guy at the Window – image 1, except you are two feet away and a distance that is just convenient and comfortable to work.

Lesson 2: Perspective Drawing

Length: 75 minutesAuthor: Val BarclayComplexity: Standard

Perspective Lessons

For the less technical students I have made this a step-by-step, easy to follow procedure that I hope you can understand. This is where it starts to get technical but I am sure it will make sense as you progress. The “Theory” to produce accurate drawings of just what you ‘see’ to your audience, is the aim of our Courses.

The theory gets technical but must be learned and understood for you to truly create and understand Perspective Drawing.

Lesson 3: Rules of Vanishing Points

Length: 120 minutesAuthor: Val BarclayComplexity: Standard

Perspective Lessons

Here we will start to create perspective drawings starting with the most basic structure using Vanishing Points.

I hope you had no problem answering the questions from Lesson 2, and if you get the opportunity please read it all again until you understand just what has been drawn.

Lesson 4: Measurements

Author: Val Barclay

Perspective Lessons

You have created image 7 it will be your first real Perspective Drawing from our Course. Please remember how it was done, you will be constructing your own perspective drawings later.

The Quiz will always be based on the content of the Course so it’s very important that you read carefully and understand the Course. Please complete the Quiz and I will see you in Course 2: Creating Rectangle Perspective Box.
