The Gordon Schools 1 Point Perspective Introduction
1 Point Perspective 1 point perspective drawings are a type of pictorial drawing. They are a realistic drawing of an object showing it as if it were disappearing towards 1 vanishing point in the distance.
1 Point Perspective A good example of a 1 point perspective drawing is railway tracks. Up close they appear full size but then taper away thinner as they stray into the distance. 1 point perspective sketch of railway tracks
1 Point Perspective If a 1 point perspective drawing is full size from the front, what view of the shape or area will be drawn full size?
1 Point Perspective The Elevation is drawn full size with all depths tapered to the vanishing point. Therefore, the following shapes seen as a front view should be drawn: – Rectangles/squares with 90° corners – Circles using compass – Triangles with angles measured
1 Point Perspective The rectangle below is the front of a box All corners are drawn at 90°.
1 Point Perspective Here, the vanishing point is being added to the drawing. Vanishing Point
1 Point Perspective Now all depths are projected back to the vanishing point.
1 Point Perspective You cannot make accurate measurements using a ruler when drawing a perspective drawing. Instead estimate the sizes by using a suitable proportion of sizes in the drawing. These depths will be drawn horizontally or vertically.
1 Point Perspective Now darken in your finished 1 point perspective shape.
1 Point Perspective All depths go to the vanishing point. The front shapes are drawn as follows: – Rectangles/squares with 90° corners – Circles using compass – Triangles with angles measured You cannot measure depths. Instead estimate these depths, being careful to keep your drawing in a good proportion.
