Perspective for Artists

In this highly anticipated lesson, Erik Olson tackles the challenging subject of Three Point Perspective, elucidating the difference between one, two, and three point perspective. Building upon prior lessons, and with an understanding of vanishing points, measuring points, station points, and centers of vision, you will learn to construct scenes with “bird’s eye” and “worm’s eye” points of view. Erik’s lessons are the best way to develop your three-dimensional mind, which is vital to incorporating interesting “multi-point” perspective into your art. He shows you that it doesn’t have to be a daunting or overwhelming subject– with patience, concentration, and practice, three point perspective can be a fun and valuable tool in your artistic repertoire.
