Perspective for Beginners
I was taught perspective several times and I didn’t really get to grips with it till I came to teach it. It can feel very complex but I’ve simplified it for you, paired it down to the basics without losing any of the fundamental principles. It’s very doable and very rewarding.
Understanding perspective is highly empowering for anyone who wants to draw and paint. It’s so satisfying to draw authentic buildings and include them in your artwork. This course has been designed to give you a basic knowledge of why boxes and buildings in perspective i.e. moving away from the eye, appear the way they do. Understanding the principles enables you to include simple, credible structures in your drawings and paintings.
