Getting On With The Basics
Are you intimidated or frustrated with capturing space and depth in your art? Do you avoid drawing or painting some images because tackling perspective is too difficult? Join Kim in this 3-hour lecture/demo where you will explore the different types of perspective in street scenes, people & crowds, still life, and landscape.
We’ll spend time experimenting with tricks and tools to help you interpret and render space. The instructor will keep it fun and loose. We are not slaves to the ruler in this course. You will create samples in your own sketchbook to illustrate the many different ways an artist may use perspective to create space, dimension, and focus.
By the end of this 3-hour session, you will be able to distinguish between 1-point, 2-point, and multiple point perspective. Concepts of tiled floors and receding archways will no longer elude you. Key points in the course include eye-level vs horizon, 1-point vs multiple-point linear perspective, aerial and atmospheric perspective, and how to use spatial reference points.
This course is ideal for illustrators, urban sketchers, travel art journalists, and painters. School teachers and art teachers will find that the techniques shared in this course are transferable to the classroom. Perspective skills are easy to learn and invaluable asset for the artist. Once you can see it, you can draw it!
