Transcript of 1-Point Perspective
Make yourself an ark of gofer wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it with pitch inside and outside. This is how you are to make it: The ark will be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. You are to make a roof, finishing [the sides of the ark] to within 18 inches [of the roof.] You are to put a door in the side of the ark. Make it with lower, middle, and upper [decks]. Genesis 6: 14-16 Ellipse: A circle drawn in perspective. Ellipse One-Point Perspective:
Objects having only one vanishing point. Plane: Any flat surface such as a wall, the floor, table top, side of a cube or building, etc. Vertical Lines:
Parallel lines that go up and down. These lines have no vanishing point. Horizon Line:
This is a line that divides your paper into
two sections: the earth and the sky. Linear Perspective:
A technique for suggesting depth in a picture by making parallel lines meet at a vanishing point. Also makes objects look 3-D. Surface ~ things that are closer to the eye are drawn closer to the bottom of the picture.
Size ~ things that are nearer to the eye should be drawn larger.
Surface lines ~ these lines wrap around the object you are drawing to give it three dimensions.
Overlapping ~ things that are closer to the eye overlap the farther parts.
Shading ~ this is used to give volume to the object that you draw.
Density ~ things that are closer to the eye are drawn with more detail than things farther away.
Foreshortening ~ the whole object is foreshortened, to give proper dimension. La chambre de Van Gogh à Arles (Van Gogh's Room at Arles), 1889. Oil on canvas Seven Laws of Perspective Vanishing Point:
A dot on the HORIZON Line where parallel lines appear to meet. The School of Athens, Raphael, 1510-1511 Bird's-Eye View:
Tower of Babel is a 1928 woodcut by M. C. Escher. Worm's-Eye View
