Perspective Drawing During the Renaissance artists became interested in making two-dimensional (flat) artwork look three- dimensional. They developed a system to show depth logically and consistently.
Perspective Many of the earlier works artists created showed little depth. Does this picture reflect depth? Why or why not? How could this picture be changed to increase its’ depth?
Perspective Artists used mathematics and close observation to invent linear perspective. Linear perspective allows artists to trick the eye into seeing depth on a flat surface.
Perspective Influential People during the Renaissance Art: Michelangelo Leonardo da Vinci Science Galileo Literature Shakespeare Raphael, School of Athens, One-point linear perspective
You can see the top of an object if it is below eye level, below the Horizon Line. If an object is above eye level, above the Horizon Line, you can not see it’s top. Horizon Line The place where the earth and the sky meet. Represents the viewer’s eye level Horizontal
In one point perspective, there is one vanishing point from which all lines radiate outwardly from.

Draw a horizontal line between the two orthogonals where you want your forms to end. Vertical lines go from the top of the page to bottom of the page and are perpendicular to the bottom edge of the picture. Along with orthogonal and horizontal lines they make up a one-point perspective drawing.
Two-Point Perspective In two-point perspective, there exist two points from which an object’s lines radiate from; the sides of the object vanish to one of two vanishing points on the horizon line. An object’s vertical lines do not relate to the perspective rules of the horizontal lines. line.
Surrealism Art movement in the 1924- 1950’s in Europe. Fantastical visual imagery from the subconscious mind is used with no intention of making the work logically comprehensible.
Surrealism is an invented word "sur" means beyond or farther than, so "surreal" means to go beyond real. Surrealism tried to meld the conscious and the unconscious, the world of dreams and fantasy along with reality so that the line between these ideas was completely blurred. wanted to shock their viewers with the unexpected and make people think in new ways.
Surrealist Artists: Max Ernst Salvador Dali Rene Magritte Jean Arp Joan Miro Man Ray M.C. Escher
Rene Magritte was a Belgian surrealist painter. He painted in a realistic style. While the objects appear to the viewer to be recognizable, the composition of those recognizable objects appears fantastic. What parts are real and which are imaginary?
His paintings are expressive for their juxtaposition of common objects, often altered in scale, and placed in absurd settings. Magritte is deeply interested in the process of thought, and his paintings tend to raise the awareness of the viewer to their own thought processes.
Surrealistic Techniques - “How to make the ordinary look extraordinary” Scale Levitation Juxtaposition Dislocation Transparency Transformation
SCALE Changing an object’s scale, or relative size.
THINK…. Dreams…. Have you ever dreamt about a person or place, but in your dream they looked different? Have you ever dreamt you were floating? Were you huge? Were you tiny? Have you ever dreamt you could fly, swim underwater, walk on the moon…
Your project requirements You must use two point perspective Will choose at least 5 random words from a hat to illustrate in your “surreal scene” Surrealistic (use methods like scale, levitation, juxtaposition, dislocation, transparency, transformation) Can be domestic or public, inside or outside scene Blend & layer colored pencils smoothly with good craftsmanship
