  3. 3. 1-point perspective All lines vanish to ONE single point on the Horizon
  4. 4. Where are the Vanishing points?
  5. 5. So how many vanishing points are there? 1-point perspective 2-point perspective 3-point perspective
  6. 6. 2-point Perspective • Parallel lines converge on 2 vanishing points on the horizon
  7. 7. Caillebotte, Gustave. “Paris Street, Rainy Day.” 1877.
  8. 8. Fabritius, Carel. “View of Delft.” 1652. (pupil of Rembrandt)
  9. 9. History of Perspective in Art • Filippo Brunelleschi practiced perspective by drawing outlines of buildings on mirrors. He noticed the lines all converged on the horizon. • Brunelleschi would then create paintings, have the viewer look through a tiny hole in the painting at the actual building, then in a mirror-both the painting and the actual building were nearly indistinguishable
  10. 10. Our Project: 2-Point Perspective Cityscapes
  11. 11. • Draw a horizon line • Draw 2 vanishing points • All of the subjects in your piece should converge on the 2 vanishing points
  12. 12. • Add details and be CREATIVE! • Careful Craftsmanship is important!
