10/4 Linear Perspective

The class began projects addressing Linear Perspective. Perspective is the concept of creating the illusion of three dimensional space.  There are a number of rules to follow when drawing in perspective. First, perspective establishes the viewer's location within the image (i.e. bird's eye view - above, bug's eye view - below, or straight on).  Second, parallel lines will appear to converge meeting at vanishing points located on the horizon line/ eye level.  Therefore, objects will appear to diminish in size as they recede towards the horizon.  The class project is to create an imaginary space using two-point linear perspective. Drawings to continue on Wednesday.
