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 second lesson of the series, Sheldon will focus on two-point perspective, showing you how to find your multiple vanishing points and horizon line, how to correctly scale, and how to turn your subject to draw it from different angles. Sheldon will then apply these concepts to a drawing of a street corner using a fountain pen.
