Perspective drawing is a drawing where perspective parallel and oblique lines meet. Perspective drawing provides opportunities to the artist to create three dimensional objects. Perspective drawing developed in 1500's. Before the invention of perspective drawing artists use the old techniques of overlapping in order to represent space and depth in their art works. The artists also use to place small articles at a distance and the larger ones in the front, but this pattern of making perspective drawing was not always effective to that extent. The geometric style of making linear perspective is representation of the objects in such a way that the objects appear smaller and closer even if they are in a distance, on a paper. Perspective drawing was developed in the 15th century by some architects like Alberti, Leon Baptista and Filippo Brunelleschi . In the beginning for 500 years perspective drawing was considered a basic rule of western art. Every perspective drawing involves two basic elements:
Linear Perspective an art basically concerned with organizing shapes and space.
Aerial Perspective a perspective art which deals with the effect of climatic condition on tones and hues.
It is necessary to have a basic thorough knowledge of Perspective drawing in order to create an effective perspective image. While creating perspective drawing if you are taking any other reference other than CAD output, it is necessary to have a good understanding of the basic rules of perspective drawing.
Perspective drawing was invented by ‘Brunelleschi', a Florentine architect. The ideas of Perspective drawing were later on developed by the Renaissance artists like Francesca, Piero Della and Andrea Mantegna . Many books are also written on perspective drawing but the first book on perspective was published in 1436, by the name, ‘On Painting'. Two point perspectives are more difficult than a simple one, in two point the front, back and side edges of an object needs to be joined in the direction of vanishing points
