Perspective for Artists

In this intermediate lesson, Erik Olson ushers you further into an understanding of three-point perspective. Having become familiar with (and, hopefully, memorized!) the basics of the three-point triangle and the cone of vision, it’s now time to start applying the knowledge to figures, objects, and scenes. To harness the power of perspective in your artwork you need to control the mechanisms of perspective. Perspective should be subordinate to your style and art! In this lesson you’ll continue your practice and memorization of the principles of three-point perspective.
