Who were the dudes that developed/invented this?
Filippo Brunelleschi (filippo brunelleski) was one of the foremost architects and engineers of the Italian Renaissance. He is perhaps most famous for his discovery of linear perspective.
Masaccio was another artist that used linear perspective... he was the best painter of his generation because of his skill at recreating lifelike figures and movements as well as a convincing sense of three-dimensionality.
Edward Hopper's The Lighthouse at Two Lights, 1929 is a great example of two point perspective. The vanishing points are outside of the border of the image, and the horizon line is low on the page because the viewer is looking up at the lighthouse.
Two Point Perspective
Oh yes! It is everywhere...
The technique of representing three-dimensional objects and depth relationships on a two-dimensional surface. Its how we turn a shape into a form...
So what is perspective?
There are different types of perspective...
1. Linear; One-Point, Two-Point, and Three-Point
2. Aerial Perspective
Three- Point Perspective
MC Esher is most famous for his so-called impossible structures, such as Ascending and Descending, Relativity, his Transformation Prints, such as Metamorphosis I, Metamorphosis II and Metamorphosis III, Sky & Water I or Reptiles.

He does a wonderful job of using perspective to give the illusion of depth to his structures. This is an example of his 3 Point Perspective...
A twist on Perspective; Julian Beever
His artwork is the online PHOTO not the chalk drawing... if not viewed from an exact point the drawing looks way off...
Julian Beever is known all over the world for his pavement drawings, more especially his 3D illusions, drawn in a special distortion to create an impression of 3D when seen from one particular viewpoint.
Correct Viewpoint...
Off/Wrong Viewpoint...
Key Terms
Horizon Line-
Where the sky meets the ground/ Line of sight.
Vanishing Point-
The point at which receding parallel lines viewed in perspective appear to converge. The point at which something that has been growing smaller or increasingly faint disappears altogether.
Orthogonal Line-
Lines that are drawn on paper that extend to Vanishing Point
One Point Perspective-
Perspective with One Vanishing Point
Two Point Perspective-
Perspective with Two Vanishing Points
Aerial/Atmospheric Perspective-
Illusion of distance by lessening intensity, size, and color.
So what are you going to need to know? Where do you start?
1. Draw a horizon line (try not to draw this right in the middle of the page! Keep in mind this is parallel to the bottom of the page)
2. Draw one vanishing point.
For one point perspective...
3. Draw a shape (box) above or below the line.
4. Connect the corners of the box to the vanishing point. Look at the example- box furthest to the left.
5. Draw the back of the box to complete your form. Make sure that the line remains parallel to the front shape of the box.
Transparent box
Open box
Two Point Perspective
1. Draw a horizon line. Draw TWO vanishing points

2. Draw lines back from the top of the line to BOTH vanishing points.

3. To create the back of the box draw parallel lines.

4. From the top of the back edge lines draw back to the OPPOSITE vanishing points.

Your worksheet... lets look...
Atmospheric/Aerial Perspective
Is the effect the atmosphere has on the appearance of an object as it is viewed from a distance. As the distance between an object and a viewer increases, the contrast between the object and its background decreases, and the contrast of any markings or details within the object also decreases. The colors of the object also become less saturated and shift towards the background color, which is usually blue, but under some conditions may be some other color (for example, at sunrise or sunset distant colors may shift towards red). The size also decreases. Some Examples...
DaVinci's Mona Lisa
Seurat's Une Baignade
and what is this organic business?
Once done with your worksheets you will begin your sketchbook assignment. You will use your new skills with perspective to:
Draw a horizon line and vanishing point
Draw 20 shapes in proper perspective
10 Geometric
8 Organic
2 Letters
When drawing shapes make sure some are above the horizon line, some are below horizon line, and some are on the horizon line
Give one shape a hole
And overlap 2 shapes
