However, having the ability to see in perspective is the key to capture something intangible such as the space around us, and enclose this 3D form in a flat, white piece of paper!
Done it right, it can show us the world from an angle beyond ordinary human observation.
One point, two point, three, four points of perspective! – How many points of perspective can we have?
What a variety of unusual angles we can project by connecting just the dots…!
This game is challenging yet, extremely fascinating…
Working on my latest commission, I’ve encountered this problem:
I needed to find the best point of perspective, which in this case would unable the rider to ‘visually’ jump out of the picture.
What would be the best solution?
I have used two point perspective: Two point perspective uses two vanishing points placed on the horizon line. Receding lines are drawn from each one of the vanishing points.
The eye of the viewer will follow along these lines to one of the vanishing points.
Parallel, vertical lines are drawn to indicate where the biker ends and his height. The closer that these lines are placed in space to the vanishing points on either side, the longer the form appears.
PLAYING WITH PERSPECTIVE
Once we know how to place an object on the perspective grid, we can play with a variety of arrangements of vanishing points and angles.
Here the vertical parallel lines are angled hence making an illusion of the biker tilting to the right… 😉
I have to admit that when I am painting I can see the objects I paint perfectly arranged on a grid which I mentally draw in my head; and see those objects on the paper before they are being even drawn.
Commission me to create for you a personalised piece that captures you or someone you love in a favourite sporting activity.
It’s a perfect present, so personal and thoughtful, when you give it to that special person in your life: the athlete who you admire and of whom you’re really proud…
On my customized pictures I capture:
– any sport activity
– the colours of your team/gear – so you know where you belong…
– anywhere you want – you can have any landmark in the background to show off your most memorable adventures and achievements.
