I decided to start the new thread on Perspective drawing. Val, is it possible to move the other posts on this topic from my "Let's Draw" thread?
I think I'm getting better at this. It took much less time to do this sheet tonight. The information and examples from Val and Robert helped a lot! At some point I may be able to do something like your paint can, mea. Not yet. I know this is very basic here but baby steps will get me to toddler, then to adolescence, and hopefully perspective "maturity" some day.  :D :2funny: :D

Previous examples from Kathy's thread.

This drawing is Val's example. It was very helpful to get me started on my own.  :thankyou: Val!

  This just gives you the basic starting point. From here you can see how it works and practice and apply it to any object/subject you wish to draw.



Well done! There you go Kathy, you now have the basics. Anything you want to draw can now be done in perspective by applying your newfound knowledge....  Of course there are times you may require more multiple VPs, but you'll grow into that.  ;)    :clap: :clap: :clap:

KathyS

I admire your determination to get comfortable with this.  The paint can was easy compared to what you are doing.

Will be interested to see how this all turns out.

 :thankyou: Thank you, mea. After all the years that I believed that I could not draw, I want to absorb everything I can. This is a whole new and exciting adventure.   :)

I created a new folder in my profile labeled perspective. I really didn't want them to be on the front page of the site but am still fumbling with how to post images. But, that said, feel free to view them at your leisure. While solid objects in perspective are very good exercises, no one buys a painting of just objects (well then there's abstracts which I have failed my entire life to comprehend.

Here's a link that Nina found. Covers 1, 2, and 3 point perspective quite nicely.

 :thankyou: Thank you for posting your prospective drawings Robert. They are very helpful. Having struggled the last couple of days has already taught me a lot. Looking at your detailed and complex perspective drawings actually makes sense to me now.  :yippee: I am no where near creating anything like them yet but at least I get it now. Thank you for your help in my journey of understanding.

As for posting media to the front page, I agree. I REALLY did not want my rough practice pages on the front page but don't know any other way to get them into my posts. If anyone knows a way to get images to posts without having them on the front page, please advise.   :)

Thank you Kathy :thankyou: for reposting this information for everyone to view and use.
I'm finding that technology is passing by me faster than a speeding bullet. Thank goodness for pencils because if I can no longer afford electricity, I can always revert to pencil and paper to earn a living.

Keep practicing. and as according to everything I've read... Michaelangelo was taught... to draw something every day without fail.

 :thankyou: Val and Nina for the link to Craftsy for 1,2,&3 point perspective. I did this 3 point following instruction from that link. Again, my drawing is very basic but I'm expanding  :D. I will be ready to try my hand at Nolan's building soon.  I'm going to go on to my still life lesson and then come back to this.  :)
