This drawing has picture frames, a window, shelves, a couch, and a table. 1 point perspective (also called parallel perspective) is used by interior designers because it is the easiest way to draw an interior room quickly.

Hold a box in your hand in such a position that you only see the front and top of it. Observe that as we view the top, its outer edges appear to converge. This condition is caused by an optical illusion. As the top turns away from us, the relationship between the length and width changes or diminishes. This phenomenon is known as foreshortening. Observe also that as we look at the face of the box, it is seen in its true form. The reason for this is that it is perpendicular to our line of vision.
Without the knowledge of perspective, constructive drawing is impossible. Leonardo Da Vinci called it the "bridle and rudder of painting." Every form, from a grain of sand to a mountain, exists in perspective. It is the first thing a student must learn. Like the alphabet in a language, without it, one would not be able to write. Too many students by-pass this phase of learning. The knowledge of perspective makes it possible to create the illusion that objects and figures are three dimensional on a two dimensional surface such as a sheet of paper, canvas or wall.
