STAN!!! You're so FREAKIN' Funny!!!I love when you started sweating then it escalated!!!🤣🤣🤣 "...That's why we had that exercise..." Ugh. Sometimes we're so hard on ourselves. Even when no one is around. Hahaa! Thanks for being in the drawing "trenches" with us! Thank you for all the wisdom and knowledge and joy of art and humanity you're sharing with the world.
Great video - just to help everyone a good reference for perspective drawings is R Fraser Reekie's book Draughtmanship - its a very old book but good and as am architect ( drawing perspectives for years) i recommend it. Love all your videos!
I have a basic grasp of one, two and three point perspective. It's good to start from the beginning again. Thanks, great video and explanation. When you mention that as perspective gets more complicated there can be many vanishing points, that's where have difficulty and keeping track or even working out all of the vanishing lines in a scene without creating a mass / mess of lines. I'm looking forward to all the perspective lessons.
I'm not new to drawing, I even work. But the perspective is very difficult for me. It took me years to realize that 1,2 points are conditional, and 99% of the time we see the world in 3 points. It took me a few more years to realize that this should be at the subconscious level. I have to draw millions of boxes so I don't have to think. And here I am again. It will never be enough. And I have to find the strength not to reflect.
This might be too advanced and this is just a basic excersice for 1 point perspective. But I have some questions. Using 1 point perspective for an object that shows more than 2 planes (front and above or from below) is just something theorietical? Because When you see something from slightest angel it will be a second varnishing point? In the renaissance they used 1 point perspective even When they showed more sides because they hadnt learned other kinds of perspective yet. (Did you teach me that? :D ) In one of your courses I don’t remember wich you said if you see the frontplane undistorted with 90 degrees angles a perfect square you can’t see the side plane. Its an impossible box. So the boxes towards the sides in this practice are impossible boxes? Just theoretical?
