One point perspective

  1. 1. One-Point Perspective “ Just a walk in the park!” A Purple Paintbrush Art Lesson for Kids
  2. 2. For this project, we will need: - drawing paper - pencil - eraser - ruler - colored pencils
  3. 3. During this project, we will: - Learn how artists create space in art. - Learn how to utilize one-point perspective. - Strengthen our drawing skills. - Use our creativity to create an individual park scene. - Strengthen our coloring skills and experiment with colored pencils.
  4. 4. Essential Question: How do artists create space in art?
  5. 5. Essential Question: How do artists create space in art? Sometimes artists want a drawing or painting to feel as if you can “walk” into the picture. Even though it’s a flat piece of paper, artists want it to seem as if some things are near, and some things are far. There are several different ways to accomplish this.
  6. 6. Essential Question: How do artists create space in art? OVERLAP Let the drawing of one object go over the top of another. Which appears closer, the ladybug or the leaf?
  7. 7. Essential Question: How do artists create space in art? HEIGHT Each ladybug is the same size. Which appears the farthest away, the one near the bottom, middle, or top of the picture?
  8. 8. Essential Question: How do artists create space in art? SIZE The ladybugs are at the same height, but which seems closer, the one on the left, or the one on the right?
  9. 9. Essential Question: How do artists create space in art? LINEAR PERSPECTIVE This type of linear perspective is called one-point perspective. Which ladybug appears the farthest away?
  10. 10. Essential Question: What is one-point perspective?
  11. 11. Essential Question: What is one-point perspective? One-point perspective is just one type of linear perspective. It is a mathematical way of creating the illusion of space. It is called one-point perspective because there is only one vanishing point (as opposed to two, three, and four-point perspective).
  12. 12. Essential Question: What is one-point perspective? One-point perspective can often be found by looking out a window! Let’s first identify the elements of one-point perspective before we draw our own.
  13. 13. Essential Question: What is one-point perspective? The horizon line is where the sky ends and the land (or water) begins. Sometimes there are mountains, trees, or houses in the way, in which case you may have to make an educated guess. HORIZON LINE
  14. 14. HORIZON LINE Essential Question: What is one-point perspective? The vanishing point is sometimes near the center, sometimes off to the side, but it is always on the horizon line. This is the point at which all perspective lines converge, and where objects seem to vanish, or disappear. VANISHING POINT
  15. 15. HORIZON LINE Essential Question: What is one-point perspective? Perspective lines are straight lines that connect to the vanishing point. These are also used as guidelines to tell the artist how big or how small to draw objects that are near or far. VANISHING POINT PERSPECTIVE LINES
  16. 16. A famous example of early one-point perspective is Delivery of the Keys, painted in 1481-1482 by Italian artist, Pietro Perugino.
  17. 17. Can you find the horizon line, vanishing point, and perspective lines?
  18. 18. HORIZON LINE
  19. 19. VANISHING POINT
  20. 20. PERSPECTIVE LINES
  21. 21. One-point perspective is... Just follow these easy steps! “ Just a walk in the park!”
  22. 22. Step #1 Decide whether you would like to hold your paper horizontal or vertical. Place your ruler near the middle of the paper and lightly drag your pencil across to create the horizon line. (Where the land ends and the sky begins.)
  23. 23. Step #2 On your horizon line draw a dot for your vanishing point. (This will be the point where all your lines converge and all your objects seem to disappear.)
  24. 24. Step #3 To begin the park scene, draw a large tree on the left-hand side of your paper. This can be any type of tree that you like. I like to draw two lines for a trunk, and a cloud-shape treetop.
  25. 25. Step #4 Next create a perspective line (guideline) that connects the bottom of the tree to the vanishing point.
  26. 26. Step #5 Also create a perspective line (guideline) that connects the top of the tree to the vanishing point. You can later erase these lines if you don’t need them.
  27. 27. Step #6 Make each tree fit between the guidelines you just created. Be sure the top of the tree touches the top line, and the bottom of the tree touches the bottom line. To fit many trees onto your path, overlap as necessary.
  28. 28. Step #6 Be sure to keep your tree trunks nice and straight to prevent them from looking as if they are tipping over.
  29. 29. One-point perspective can be as basic as this. Notice how you created an illusion of space; it seems as if the trees are getting farther and farther away. One-point perspective can also be very detailed and intricate if you continue adding objects, as you’ll see on the next page.
  30. 30. Challenge Step (Optional) For added interest, you can add more objects to your scene. For example, flowers, grass, sidewalk, people, etc. The same rule applies to these objects as the tree. Start the first object on the far left.
  31. 31. Challenge Step (Optional) Connect the bottom of the object to the vanishing point. Connect the top of the object to the vanishing point. Draw all the other objects within the guidelines until they are so tiny, they disappear.
  32. 32. Step #7 To make the illusion of space very powerful, repeat what was drawn on the left, on the right. Begin drawing a large tree on the right. Connect the top and bottom of the tree to the vanishing point.
  33. 33. Step #8 Make all the other objects fit within the guidelines. If you added a challenge object on the left, be sure to add it on the right as well.
  34. 34. Challenge Step (Optional) You can leave your park pathway grass or dirt by coloring it accordingly, and adding texture. But if you are up for a challenge, try to make a brick-lined path. First divide the beginning of your path by making marks for how wide you would like your bricks to be.
  35. 35. Challenge Step (Optional) Using your ruler, connect each marking to the vanishing point.
  36. 36. Challenge Step (Optional) Now holding your ruler horizontal, draw lines across to create the length of your bricks. Be sure to make your bricks shorter and shorter as you near the vanishing point.
  37. 37. Step #9 Using colored pencils, begin coloring the objects in your drawing. Try breaking your coloring jobs into sections. For example, maybe first only focus on the treetops. If you finish the treetops, then move on to the tree trunks.
  38. 38. Step #9 Experiment with the colored pencils. Try layering colors to make new colors. Push down and darken the edges of objects to make shapes stand out. Try using a variety of colors to add interest to your drawing.
  39. 39. Congratulations! Your masterpiece is complete!
