Perspective Types of Perspective
Atmospheric/Optical -The effect of air and light on how an object is perceived by the viewer. The more air between the viewer and the object the more the object seems to fade, bright objects appear closer, duller objects appear farther away. Value or Color: Generally darker values appear closer./ Chiaroscuro Detail: Objects in the foreground have more detail, the farther away an object is the less detail is seen. Overlapping: objects in the foreground cover part of the objects behind them Position: Objects in the fore ground are placed lower on the picture plane. Size: Objects appear to get smaller as the get farther away.
Eye level line/ the imaginary line representing the viewers eye in relation to what they are viewing Vanishing point/ point at which all parallel lines appear to converge in the distance Receding/ moving away from you Advancing/ moving toward you Ellipse/ slightly squashed circle Parallel/ lines the same distance apart moving in the same direction. Converge/ to come together Horizon/ where sky and ground appear to meet in the distance. Chiaroscuro/ the arrangement of light and shadow. Highlights / are small areas of white used to show the very brightest spots.
