Length: 10 minutesAuthor: Ezechinyere Kingsley

<p class="has-luminous-vivid-amber-background-color has-background"><strong>INTRODUCTION</strong></p> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Naturally, distant objects appear smaller than their real sizes e.g. the stars, the sun, the moon etc. For instance, the farther we look down a long corridor in a building, the narrower it appears to come. Perspective drawing therefore shows the pictorial representation of the apparent reduction in size of a distant object. Since architecture deals with large objects like buildings, perspective drawing becomes more useful in making architectural drawings realistic than either isometric or oblique drawing. Distant parts of a building are shown in perspective as tapering to a point, just as they appear to an observer of the actual building. Perspective projection can be in one-point, two-point or three-point perspective.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Any perspective representation of a scene that includes parallel lines has one or more <a href="">vanishing points</a> is a perspective drawing. </p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <pre class="wp-block-preformatted"><strong>One-Point Perspective Drawing <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img src="" alt="" class="wp-image-12735"/><figcaption>One-perspective drawing with parallel lines that meet at vanishing point</figcaption></figure> <div class="sign-up-notice-after-excerpt-two" style="background-color:powderblue;"> You are viewing an excerpt of this lesson.
