### Perspective drawing

1. 1. Linear Perspective  Perspective drawing is a technique used to show the third dimension (depth) on a two dimensional picture plane.  This drawing technique was developed late in the 15th century  Linear Perspective deals with the orientation and location of shapes in space.
2. 2. Perspective drawing terms  Horizon line – Line which shows where the earth and sky meet.  Vertical line – Line which runs straight up and down.  Horizontal lines – parallel to the horizon line.  Orthogonal lines – Meet at the vanishing point of an image.  Vanishing point- Point where lines seem to meet in a perspective drawing.  1 point perspective – Perspective drawing where there is one vanishing point. (This has vertical, horizontal, and orthogonal lines)  2 point perspective – Perspective drawing which has two vanishing points. (This has vertical and orthogonal lines)  3 point perspective – Perspective drawing which has three vanishing points. (this has only orthogonal lines)
3. 3. The Last Supper, Leonardo Da Vinci, c.1495 Renaissance
4. 4. Persistence of Memory, Salvador Dali, 1931 Surrealism
