I’ve been drawing our little shed out back in the hopes that I’ll learn a little something about perspective. I’ve drawn it from a few different angles, with mixed results. This is my latest effort, from last night. But Hub (who has the magical ability to see what’s wrong with any drawing, while being (he says) unable to draw himself) says it should be more like this. I didn’t redraw the windows and door, but he says that front wall should be much shorter, and the side wall (on the right) should have a steeper angle as it goes back:
In the photo, I can’t see the roof. But in the drawing, the roof is obvious. I am standing very close to the shed in the photo – maybe 4-5 feet away.
I’ve ordered a book about perspective through interlibrary loan. I see so many artists making art out of architecture, and until I get some kind of handle on perspective, I know that won’t be possible. If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them! So far, buildings are harder to draw than bunnies and people’s faces! I really struggle with perspective. Geometry was not my best subject. 🙂 Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a wonderful & creative weekend. Peace.
