Title: PNI - Lesson #16 - Perspective for Buildings
Post by: dennis on June 06, 2014, 12:50:15 PM
In order for me to easily find and answer queries about this Lesson I will appreciate it if everyone will keep these  to this specific Lesson Posting only. This will also be of benefit to you as well in the future.  Thanks

This is an important Lesson and applicable to ALL section of the Arts.

NOTE: There will not be any drawing as such in this lesson. It will be by way of explanations with sketches (demonstration). Have a couple of typing paper sheets handy if you want to follow with me. There is nothing better than a practical exercise.

Hi Dennis.  Just watched your Perspective class last night as I desperately need this as you might have seen from my "Beach Cottage" painting.  The steps and front of the building were off and I knew it but painted outside, while looking at the building and had no method for doing this.  Lesson really helped but I think I am quite thick headed about perspective.  Is there a good book you could suggest I read so I could study more?  Also, would you ever consider doing a plein air lesson where you show us how to do this in the field (even though I know you touched on this already) with a building.  I would love to do street scene paintings but get scared away because of perspective!
