Learn how to draw linear perspective with easy-to-follow instruction from professional artist and instructor Patrick Connors. Apply composition essentials as you create a picture plane drawing. Convey the angle at which your subject is viewed with savvy use of the eye level line. Quickly and confidently place forms in your drawings with a gridded plane. Hone in on exactly what you want to portray with the cone of vision. Delve into one-point perspective, and use vanishing and measure points to draw a cube. Draw in two-point perspective as you render a cube from any angle, and add a roof to build your understanding of three-point perspective. Progress to curved lines as you work through illuminating exercises for drawing circular objects in one-, two- and three-point perspective. Use linear perspective to confidently capture lifelike form and depth in your drawings.
