EXAMPLES OF SINGLE POINT PERSPECTIVE (2)

Perspective is possibly the most realistic style of drawing as it gives a 3D drawing of the object and it gives a feel of distance and depth which is sometimes missing from other drawing styles. Below is an example of a simple kitchen table drawn in single point perspective. Try to copy the drawing following the stages outlined below.

 

1. Draw a side or front view of the table.

2. Mark a vanishing point on the paper and start projecting faint lines from each of the corners/edges of the front/side view of the table.

3. The most difficult part is ensuring that the back legs line up with the front legs. One way of ensuring that this happens is to project faint lines as shown on the drawing opposite.

4. When you have completed the drawing add some shade. On this example a grey felt pen has be used for most of the background colour, a black pen for the darker edges and for the grain of the wood.

   

 

   

Select a piece of everyday furniture and draw it in single point perspective, adding simple colour and shade.
