#### Transcript of Perspective

In two point perspective, the viewer is positioned such that objects (buildings) are viewed from one corner, (think of standing on a street corner) two sets of horizontals (edges of the building) diminish towards vanishing points at the outer edges of the picture plane, while only verticals remain perpendicular.
This is slightly more complex than 1-point, as both the front and back edges, and side edges, of an object must be diminished towards vanishing points.
Two-point perspective is often used when drawing buildings in the landscape. We will be creating our own street cityscape.
Two- Point Perspective
step 1: place your horizon line and pick your two vanishing points on the line. Draw your first perpendicular line.
Next, in light pencil, draw your vanishing lines.
Then, decide the edges of your building and
draw them in parallel to your first perpendicular line.
To find the top of your building fill in the other vanishing lines to make it a solid building.
When finished, erase your vanishing lines.
1-point perspective
In one point perspective, we draw what we see with only one vanishing point. Only one direction point is needed because the sides of all objects are moving away from us in the same one direction. Think of standing on railroad tracks and looking to the distance. Perspective creates Space. (Space is an element of art.)
Try different horizon lines
and different forms...
Begin by first choosing a horizon line This is the line at "your eye level" Think where the land meets the sky.
Next, choose a vanishing point.
ALL of your lines with meet here.
Next, using a straightedge, draw two lines coming from your vanishing point.
Start to lay out your
street using top vanishing lines (tops of buildings.

Remember things are
smaller as they are
further away from us.
