2 1 Point Perspective1 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.
3 1 Point PerspectiveA 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
4 1 Point PerspectiveIf a 1 point perspective drawing is full size from the front, what view of the shape or area will be drawn full size?
5 1 Point PerspectiveThe 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° cornersCircles using compassTriangles with angles measured
6 1 Point Perspective All corners are drawn at 90°. The rectangle below is the front of a boxAll corners are drawn at 90°.
7 1 Point PerspectiveHere, the vanishing point is being added to the drawing.Vanishing Point
8 1 Point PerspectiveNow all depths are projected back to the vanishing point.
9 1 Point PerspectiveYou 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.
10 1 Point PerspectiveNow darken in your finished 1 point perspective shape.
11 1 Point Perspective All depths go to the vanishing point. The front shapes are drawn as follows:Rectangles/squares with 90° cornersCircles using compassTriangles with angles measuredYou cannot measure depths. Instead estimate these depths, being careful to keep your drawing in a good proportion.
