Two-Point Perspective

When you consider how to draw in perspective, the two-point perspective is the most used perspective method.


How to Draw in Perspective
Two-point perspective features two vanishing points. These two vanishing points will be always located on the horizon level in cases when an object has horizontal edges. All vertical edges of an object will remain vertical without any tilt. When it comes to how to draw in perspective, the two-point perspective is one of the most commonly used in drawing. Despite this kind of perspective has approximation when it comes to depicting geometrical objects; it is good enough for majority of cases.

When you think how to draw in perspective, keep in mind that differently placed objects will have different vanishing points. Each object in two-point perspective has its own vanishing points and sometimes those points may coincide with vanishing points of other objects, providing that those objects are located in space similarly to each other.

Fine artist must be aware that not always vanishing points will be inside of the drawing area. In many instances, one or both vanishing points in two-point perspective might be arranged far beyond the drawing board edges. Anyway, as a proficient fine artist draws not only what he or she sees, but also what one knows, the rule of two-point perspective should be applied there.

The vanishing points of two-point perspective do not always have to be positioned on the horizon line. This video will demonstrate good examples of such cases.

Rules of perspective apply to all objects, not only to geometrical objects. For instance, a human figure needs to be drawn with the knowledge of perspective. On example of a sculpture in Rome I will demonstrate how these rules apply to human figure. Although a human figure has no straight lines, you should be aware how perspective affects its look.

This video part will also present other numerous examples from real life how two-point perspective works.
