In the initial video, I will provide a comprehensive explanation of the concept of the horizon line, vanishing or melting point, and the significance of orthogonals or convergence lines. By delving into these fundamental elements, viewers will gain a deeper understanding of how perspective works in art.
Understanding the horizon line is crucial as it represents the viewer's eye level and serves as a reference point for determining the placement and scale of objects in a perspective drawing.
The vanishing or melting point, on the other hand, is where parallel lines appear to converge, creating a sense of depth and distance in the artwork. By understanding how these lines work, artists can create realistic and visually appealing landscapes that draw the viewer's eye into the scene.
Moving forward, the following two videos will focus on constructing landscape examples using the one point and two point perspective schemes. Through these demonstrations, I aim to showcase the versatility and effectiveness of these perspective schemes in capturing the essence of various landscapes. One point perspective is commonly used when the subject is directly facing the viewer, while two point perspective is ideal for capturing scenes where the subject is at an angle. By mastering these techniques, artists can create drawings that accurately represent the depth and scale of the landscape, making it more immersive and engaging for the viewer.
Additionally, I will share my personal techniques and tips that have proven to be invaluable in simplifying the drawing process and overcoming potential challenges. Drawing landscapes can be complex, especially when it comes to capturing the intricate details and textures of nature. However, by breaking down the process into manageable steps and utilizing specific techniques, artists can overcome these challenges and create stunning artwork. From choosing the right materials to understanding the importance of light and shadow, I will provide practical advice that artists can apply to their own drawings.
Furthermore, I highly encourage viewers to explore another one of my techniques: utilizing the perspective grid. This powerful tool simplifies the complexities of working with two point and three point perspective, making it easier to create accurate and visually engaging artwork. The perspective grid consists of a series of intersecting lines that help artists establish the correct proportions and angles in their drawings. In the upcoming videos, I will provide a detailed, step-by-step explanation of the perspective grid's functionality and practical application, ensuring that viewers can easily incorporate this technique into their own artistic endeavors.
By expanding upon these topics and providing in-depth explanations and demonstrations, I aim to equip viewers with a comprehensive understanding of perspective in landscape drawing, empowering them to create stunning and captivating artwork. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist, these videos will provide valuable insights and techniques that can elevate your landscape drawings to new heights. So join me on this artistic journey as we explore the fascinating world of perspective in landscape drawing!
Who this course is for
- This course is intended for beginners in sketching.
- But, if you have some drawing experience, you can find some of my tips useful too.
- Good course, with some very useful techniques. It has definitely helped to up my drawing game! ~ M Almeida Duke
- I think Evgeiny is a good teacher and you will learn all you need to begin with landscape sketching, lot of tricks and hints. After that you could go outside and practice ~ A Gallardo
- Very good course for an absolute beginner like me! ~ Massimo
What you'll learn
- You will learn what is the line of horizon, what is vanishing or melting point and which lines are known as orthogonals or convergence lines. It's easy obtainable information.
- But in addition I offer something new and original: you will learn how to draw perspective in landscape using perspective grid.
- Perspective grid helps to build up the orthogonal lines when all the melting points are outside of your drawing.
- This class is for beginners in drawing.
- For sketching, you'll be needing an only sketchbook, graphite pencil and eraser.
- If you didn't draw a line in your life, better to begin with Street Sketching, Part 1 - Tricks, Hints, and Line Language.
- If you have a minimal drawing experience this course will help you to move on with street sketching particularly in perspective drawing.
