Join Amy Wynne for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding floorboards and furniture, part of Drawing 2-Point Perspective.
- [Voiceover] Let's have some fun…personalizing our new room.…Imagine you're moving into a new space…and you wanna add some things to make it feel…more like home.…So one of the first things in a room like this…I'd wanna put in is a rug.…So let's just place an area rug.…Look at how easily it lines up with our grid system.…So it's just a rectangle,…but because we put it along this guide line…it feels like it really starts to set the ground plane…really beautifully.…So that's a really simple area rug…that we can put in to make it feel more like home.…
The next thing is I really love wood floors,…love old wood floors.…So let's put in some wood floor boards.…Here we go.…So it may feel a little complicated,…but actually it's really easy,…because what these floor boards are doing…is if you just travel them back…they're actually all going…to this vanishing point right here,…they're all lining up.…And this is again reiterating this idea…that we've got this really solid ground plane,…we've got this beautiful area rug,…and these floor boards to really give…
Join artist Amy Wynne in this class as she demonstrates the basics of two-point perspective. After a brief demo of asymmetrical vs. symmetrical perspectives with 3D blocks, she takes us through more complex projects: an imagined street scene, complete with windows, doors, trees, and light posts, and an interior room with furniture. In chapter 5, Amy introduces strategies to strengthen your compositions by improving the illusion of depth. Practicing these techniques will breathe new life into your drawing and give you a new "perspective" on drawing.
