Transcript of Perspective and One-Point Perspective

Perspective Vanishing Point
Horizon Line
Orthogonal Lines Review: Linear: all parallel lines or surface edges converge on one, two, or three vanishing points with reference to the horizon line of the picture.
Atmospheric: creates the illusion of distance by greater the color intensity and the shifting of color into an almost neutral blue. Types of perspective: parallel lines appear to move off into the distance toward a horizon line and meet at a single vanishing point. One-Point Perspective Practice one-point perspective on your One-Point Perspective: Boxes worksheet and then move on to your One-Point perspective drawing assignment Now it's your turn... What is perspective? The representation of three-dimensional objects on a flat surface to produce the same impression of distance and relative size as that received by the human eye. References:

A point on the eye-level line, toward which parallel lines are made to recede and meet in perspective drawing. The line at which the sky and earth meet. But first: watch this video to get a better idea of what I want you to do: What are the definitions of these terms? Look back in your notes and raise your hand when you know the answer. Lines imagined to be behind and perpendicular to the picture plane. They appear to recede toward a vanishing point on the horizon line. To start, draw a horizon line, using ruler across the middle of your paper. Next, place a vanishing point on the horizon line. Last add orthogonal lines that recede back toward the vanishing point, using a ruler. Here's a real world example of one-point perspective: Raphael, "The School of Athens" Leonardo da Vinci, "The Mona Lisa"
