1. Getting Started With Linear Perspective

Meet Marjorie and begin with an overview of perspective. Explore the various attributes of linear perspective. Then dive right into your first project, a tumbleweed, by drawing the framework, or "skeleton."

2. Linear Perspective: Tumbleweed & Leaf
46m

2. Linear Perspective: Tumbleweed & Leaf

Once you've created the skeleton for your tumbleweed, make it look more 3-D by adding contour lines. See how perspective affects the shape and linework of a subject as you learn to use models. After that, you'll move onto your second project: a leaf.

3. Linear Perspective: Daisy & Daffodil
47m

3. Linear Perspective: Daisy & Daffodil

Dive deeper into linear perspective by working with more complex, composite shapes such as flowers. Using a layered approach similar to the previous lessons, Marjorie guides you to complete your third and final drawing: a daisy and daffodil.
