Hi and welcome back to the third lesson in this series on how to draw perspective.

Just as a quick recap, in the previous lessons, we cover the different elements of perspective such as vanishing points, horizon line, eye level, the picture plane, cone of vision, and a lot more.

If you missed those lessons, be sure to click on the link below to watch them now:

Perspective Lesson 2 – Elements of A Perspective Drawing

So there are basically 3 main types of perspective. There’s one point perspective, two point perspective, and three point perspective. There is much to say about each type of perspective, for now, we will have to narrow things down.

In this lesson, we are going to cover what exactly one point perspective is and how it works.


What Is One Point Perspective?

One point perspective means that you only have one vanishing point in a perspective drawing.  One thing to note about one point perspective is that one can only draw an object in 1-point if that object is near (or at the middle of) the observer’s field of vision. If the object begin to stray too far outside the observer’s center of vision, the object will begin to appear in two point or three point perspective.

(For a detail explanation of how 1 point perspective works as well as several examples, please refer to the video above.)

In tomorrow’s video, we are going to go through a drawing exercise and show you how to draw one point perspective.
