Many artists are intimidated by the complexity of linear perspective. In this video series, instructor Sheldon Borenstein shows you a friendly and simple approach to perspective. In this third video lesson, Sheldon will focus on three-point perspective which is vital for drawing extreme up and down angles. You will learn how to: find your vanishing points and horizon line, make a grid of your drawing, draw from low and high angles, and create ellipses. Sheldon will then apply these concepts to a low-angle drawing of a building using colored pencil.
