One Point Perspective Drawing

Standard

In the art world, perspective is still about your point of view, and the relationships of objects to one another. Only this time, it’s more spatial. When you learn to draw, you learn the importance of perspective. It’s all about how you look at the world, and that’s exactly what this post is about

One point perspective grid View

 

This worksheet illustrates how to stack blocks, cut away portions and add unusual angles in a one point perspective drawing, creating gradually more complex forms.

By the completion of this exercise, you should be able to:

  • Draw stacked blocks of different sizes
  • Draw blocks that have holes cut out of them, projecting construction lines to finOnePointPerspectiveReferenced the back edge of the cut area
  • Slice pieces off blocks and/or add unusual angles

 

 

 

Once you feel confident with drawing these items, you may wish to add more challenging forms, such as letters and/or triangular shaped prisms

One point perspective drawings are often dry and analytical. Once mastered, however, knowledge of perspective can be used to create rich, expressive observational drawings, such as this cityscape drawn using black biro pen on brown paper.
