Who uses Perspective Drawing?
If you are an Artist, Architect, Illustrator, Technical Illustrator, Photographer, in fact if you are involved in artwork in any way, you need to know Perspective Drawing.
The question, who uses perspective seems to be one of the problems that faces many artist today and can only be answered by saying, we all do as artists.
But why is this question even asked?
We look at great artists from all over the world and often wonder, why is that work so good and accurate to real life without knowing that in most cases the artist has spent time to learn the fundamentals of true artwork, perspective.
Without perspective as your backdrop to your work it often looks flat and is in need of depth. The smallest amount of perspective can make a whole lot of difference to any artwork. By introducing a sense of depth we create space and an extension of reality into our drawings, enhancing the audience’s participation with it.
Vincent Van Gogh and Perspective Drawing
Vincent Van Gogh had little idea of perspective, yet his work was also a masterpiece. He used perspective, as we know; very crudely, yet his work were such masterpieces, why?
Vincent Van Gogh used perspective in another format that we do not often consider as perspective, he used colours, and he understood colours enough to create his great works of art.
