This class will be comprised of two key components. The first will be a review of the fundamentals of linear perspective and the second will be a study of the practical uses of perspective in drawing and painting the landscape. The goal is to be able to create a through and compelling 2-dimensional description of a 3-dimensional outdoor space from observation.
The key topics of our study will be as follows:
1. Drawing simple volumes (rectilinear, cylindrical, and conical) from any viewpoint with accurate proportion in 1, 2, 3 point perspective both from observation and from imagination.
2. Seeing the underlying perspectival web of a space in a landscape and using it to determine the relative position of forms to one another.
3. Developing complex architectural forms from simplified volumes.
4. Drawing organic forms with a perspectival, structural approach.
5. Relating concepts of light and shade to linear perspective to describe the illumination on volumes throughout a space.
6. The basic of curvilinear perspective.
