Maldon & Apple

#4 of 30

Lesson of the day:

  1. the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.
    “a perspective drawing”

Amazing how posting your daily art can make one self conscious. As I look at the photograph of today’s painting, which I was reasonably happy with, I see multiple mistakes with perspective.

It’s something I have always found difficult to convey, it seems to jump out instantly in inorganic subjects. Maybe thats why I have enjoyed drawing animals and handmade objects. Organic creatures and objects don’t have straight or parallel lines or right angles.

hmm…it makes me think

Ex. Matisse P.262-226

The Window- Henri Matisse

Matisse deliberately skewed perspective how come his art doesn’t appear amateurish? Please share your thoughts.
