TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE By Paula Sadler

What are we learning? Vocabulary
Horizon line Vanishing point Vertical, horizontal, and orthogonal lines Surrealism How to start creating a drawing with two point perspective Final project – Surreal Cityscape

Vocabulary Horizon line: where the sky meets the ground, a horizontal line Vanishing point: the place where all lines meet or “vanish,” it is located on the horizon line Horizontal line: a line that goes left to right, it is parallel to the horizon line

More Vocabulary Vertical line: a line that goes up and down, it is perpendicular to the horizon line Orthogonal line: lines that create the sides of an object in one point perspective, these lines are drawn to the vanishing point Surrealism: something that is real, but wouldn’t occur in reality

Let’s get started Draw a horizon line across your paper
Put two vanishing points on the horizon line, one on both sides of your paper

Now draw a vertical line through the middle of your paper
You will have three buildings-one small, one medium and one large. Decide what your first building will be and begin.

Connect the top and bottom of the vertical line to both of the vanishing points. We are creating the orthogonal lines.

Now end the form with two vertical lines on each side.

Erase the extra orthogonal lines at the top and the horizon line inside of the form. DO YOU SEE YOUR FIRST BUILDING?

Let’s try another one! Start with a vertical line on the left side of the building.

Connect the top and bottom to each vanishing point.

End the building with a vertical line.

Erase the extra orthogonal lines and horizon line inside of the building.

Let’s do another one!

Now for doors and windows
Now for doors and windows! Start with a vertical line and connect it to the vanishing point.

If your window or door is on the left side of your building, connect the vertical lines to the left vanishing point. The same goes for the right side.

End the windows and doors with another vertical line.

Erase the extra orthogonal lines.

How about a sidewalk with a curb?

Surrealism Something that is real, but wouldn’t occur in reality
EXAMPLES: a rabbit hole in the sidewalk a building made of cheese a penguin living in a palm tree

Famous Surreal Artists
Salvador Dali “The Persistence of Memory”

Famous Surreal Artists
Rafal Olbinski “Predictability of Distinctive Manners”

Requirements One small, one medium, and one large building
At least one window and one door for each building At least three surreal objects One in the foreground (THE FRONT) One in the middle ground (THE MIDDLE) One in the background (THE BACK)
