I’m not sure why but I just don’t get one point perspective. In theory it just makes sense. I have no problem drawing imaginary one point perspective scenes but I think I would struggle a bit more if I attempted to draw a scene from life. I find it very difficult to measure angles of real life objects that are right in front of me. I flat out suck at it and need more practice. So here it is… my first attempt at one point perspective!
In the meantime if you are interested here are the basic rules for one point perspective…
- All vertical lines run perpendicular to the horizon line and will form a 90 degree angle when intersecting with the horizon line.
- All horizontal lines run parallel to the horizon line and as a result will never intersect with the the horizon line
- All diagonal lines lines must intersect and align with the vanishing point.
Isn’t it amazing what artists are able to do with three simple rules? People’s creativity blows my mind. Here are a few great examples I have found over the past few days:
