TYPE : ILLUSTRATION
VISUAL ART LESSON TOPIC : ELEMENT OF ART : SPACE
- Receding parallel lines seem to converge and meet at a point known as the vanishing point on the horizon line, e.g. the railway tracks.
- Distance influences the size and height of objects. The objects in front are much bigger and longer than the objects further behind, e.g. the lamp posts along the road side.
What makes the system of perspective so important in visual art is that it helps to create the illusion of three-dimensional depth or space on a two-dimensional surface such as the drawing paper or the electronic canvas in Photoshop. By the way, you can also copy this drawing into PowerPoint to create a slide show presentation.
