After you master the lessons of perspective that I lay down for you today, drawing in general will become much easier for you as drawing 3-dimensional objects on a 2-dimensional piece of paper will all make much more sense to you. I promise you this. However, we are not going to dive into any complex perspective drawing techniques today. This is a beginners perspective drawing tutorial that is meant to be within the grasp of an ordinary student without advanced mathematical knowledge
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.
