The essentials of 1 point and 2 point linear perspective are explained in this video by breaking it down with clear, concrete images that make it easy to translate perspective to observational drawing, as opposed to dry and boring diagrams of cubes and blocks. Basic ideas of linear perspective, such as point of view, and how the scene and perspective can dramatically affect the narrative of the artwork are explained. . By providing specific, concrete visual examples while breaking down how 1 point perspective works in a practical manner, linear perspective becomes accessible and straightforward. Discussion led by Art Prof Clara Lieu.
