Imagine that you are standing in the middle of the road. Notice how the road seems to get narrower and narrower until the sides meet at a vanishing point on the horizon. The telephone poles get smaller and smaller until they disappear – on the horizon. A line drawn along the top of the telephone poles, above your eye level, slopes down to the horizon. A line drawn along the base of the poles, below your eye level, slopes up to the horizon. Find out how to draw this Spring-Time Landscape using Perspective with the following step by step drawing tutorial. Have fun.
How to Draw Spring Landscape Scene in One Point Perspective Drawing Tutorial
Before we start drawing this Spring landscape and road in perspective, let me give you a quickie lesson in Perspective Drawing or Reference this Tutorial on One Point Perspective.
Linear perspective is represented by lines. These lines, if drawn from the top and bottom of an object, seem to run to one point, far in the distance. You can see this when you stand in the middle of a road (DON’T REALLY STAND IN THE MIDDLE OF A ROAD PLEASE)….like the one that we will be drawing today. Notice how as you look further down the road, the road seems to be getting narrower, the fence’s rails appear to be closer together, and the telephone poles see to be getting closer together too (as well as much tinier).
Draw a line with a dot in the middle of this line…this dot is the vanishing point
What is a Vanishing Point?
You have, no doubt, seen a balloon go up, and noticed, when you were close to it, how large it was, and how as it went higher and farther, it grew smaller and smaller, and you watched it sailing through the sky, till it was a mere speck, and at last it was out of sight. This point, where the balloon goes out of sight, is called the vanishing point. The true horizon line, is where the lines drawn from the top and bottom of a row of houses, men, or other objects, meet and this horizon line is the point where the land and sky meet, and is always on a level with the eye.
Now get out a ruler or a straight edged surface and draw a bunch of lines to the vanishing point, as I did in the picture above.
Now draw a bunch of vertical (lines that go up and down) lines attached to the lines that you drew in the previous step. Make sure that they get closer together as you get closer to the vanishing point. Start drawing the tree as well.
Now we are going to draw the barn….draw 3 lines towards the vanishing point again.
Draw 2 vertical lines…and 2 other lines that aren’t vertical.
Now put in some more details.
Add more details by looking at our finished picture.
