Drawing, painting and 3D art work
Objective: To offer a working knowledge of one and two point linear perspective. This will include constructing an interior and exterior scene with figures in proper scale. There will be one lesson about proportions of the human form, after which students will add figures to their interior and exterior drawings.
We will learn to construct basic forms (i.e. cubes, cylinders, cones and spheres) in perspective. Students should be able to construct shadows at various aspects to create these basic building blocks of nature in your work.
In the last class we will create a still-life drawing where you can incorporate all of the above principles into your works of art.
Students will decide to either use a ruler or work freehand.
WEEK 1- One & two point linear perspective overview.
line of sight, vanishing point, eye level, horizon line, center of vision, station point, picture plane & ground plane.
height of eye level
location of picture plane
viewer to object distance
angle of object
In class work:
A. Draw cubes (boxes and rectangles) at three perspective angles: 1pt, 2pt, and 2pt angular perspective on, above and below the horizon line. (1/2 hour practical). Later, we make these into cylinders, cones & spheres.
B. Construct a one point perspective interior together.
Step-by-step drawing continued:
We continued with our one point perspective interior adding doors, windows, stairs, bookcase, sofa, etc.
Constructed a 2pt perspective gridded floor and began to add furniture.
A. Continue adding furniture to either your 1 or 2 point perspective drawings.
B. Construct a 2pt perspective exterior adding a pitched roof, staircase, etc.
C. Perspective circles
D. Drawing spirals within cylinders.
