Check Out This Excerpt From Expressive Oil Painting:Perspective
Drawing in perspective is a combination of understanding, careful observation and practice. Perspective is really an optical illusion. The theory of perspective is simply a way of explaining the way things look rather than the way they actually are. Understand this optical distortion and draw what you see. I'll help you with the basic overview of how perspective works, the basic theory and how to put the theory into practice.
1. FIRST, THE EYE LEVEL
It may be helpful to think of the world as fi lled with water up to the level of your eyes. You look up at everything above the water level, and down at everything below.
2. SLANTING LINES
Receding horizontal lines appear not horizontal at all, but instead seem to slant. These lines, which in reality are parallel to the horizontal eye level, slant to varying degrees according to how far they are above or below the level of your eyes. Extended far enough beyond the shapes they defi ne, they will converge with the eye level. These convergences are called vanishing points. It is not necessary to draw actual lines extending beyond the objects you depict and all the way to vanishing points. However, you do need to visualize them.
3. THE SLANT CHANGES
This photograph was taken from a higher eye level. Compare the perspective lines to the ones in step 2. See how the slant of the lines has changed. Now they correspond to the new eye level. When you raise or lower your eye level, vanishing points and perspectivelines will change accordingly. This means if you visualize painting while standing and then sit down to paint, the look of things will have altered.
