LINEAR PERSPECTIVE: Building a Better Box

Liz Bufton

Michelle Reardon
Last night we discussed One-Point and Two-Point Linear Perspective. The class made drawings from a still life of blocks addressing the perspective, proportions, line quality, values and imagined textures. Liz's drawing (top) illustrates evenly, rendered gradations and complementary line quality. The mood of the piece is light with short shadows suggesting mid-day light. In contrast, Michelle's drawing is dark and solemn. The bold lines are very complementary to the slight distortions in the forms making them appear heavy and grounded. The mood of the drawing is enhanced by the grainy quality of the surface which helps to unify the objects with the space.
