OnePoint Perspective
Art 101 Week 2
One point perspective is a genre of drawing that uses a single vanishing point in the distance from which everything in the drawing is set out, which, as a result, creates an illusion of depth. Below are some examples of onepoint perspective drawings.
Before we begin drawing, here are some vocabulary terms that are frequently used (and will be used in the following tutorial) in describing a onepoint perspective drawing.

Parallel: Parallel lines are lines that never touch, even if they are extended indefinitely

Perpendicular: Perpendicular lines meet at a right angle (90º angle)

Horizontal Lines: Horizontal lines are parallel to the top and bottom edges of your paper; they are perpendicular to the left and right edges of your paper

Vertical Lines: Vertical lines are parallel to the left and right edges of your paper; they are perpendicular to the top and bottom edges of your paper

Slanted Lines: Slanted lines are neither vertical nor horizontal, but rather diagonal at any other angle

Horizon Line: The horizon line is a type of horizontal line that represents the viewer’s eyelevel

Perspective Lines (or Orthogonal Lines): The lines that are parallel in real life but meet at one point in a onepoint perspective drawing

Vanishing Point: A point on the horizon line where all perspective lines meet

Plane: A flat, twodimensional surface; a cube, for instance, has 6 planes
Let’s practice drawing a few cubes in onepoint perspective:

Once you’re comfortable with your finished product, you can practice drawing a bit more complex blocks. Follow the guide below for help:

Getting the hang of it? Now pick a room, street, or picture of either, and draw it in onepoint perspective. If you don’t have a ruler at hand or having trouble with the drawing, below is a grid that you can place your paper over to guide you.
