In this first lesson of the series, artist and veteran instructor Erik Olson introduces perspective in a complete and unabridged pictorial form for artists. Erik walks you through the process of integrating compositional thumbnails and sketches with perspective all the way through to fully formal, measured perspective. You will learn how to use perspective as a tool for the artist, to serve compositional and conceptual goals. The practices and proofs that you will learn are derived from the Renaissance all the way to present day methods.
In Lesson 17: Diagram 11 Building Same Sized Box Cars with Equal Spaces, the subsequent box cars drawn after the first one gets smaller and smaller. I’m confused. They are supposed to be the same size.
Question: In Lesson 1.15: Diagram 9 (Repeating Squares and Cubes)–why draw the vertical line half way across the squares? Also, why show the 45 degree angle? P.S. These lessons have been very helpful so far thank you 🙂
