Depth Cues – wk6 journal

Hello Class,

For your week 6 journals, you may also want to explore depth cues.  In most drawings you are trying to create the illusion of a three dimensional space on a two dimensional surface. A sense of depth will add visual interest and appeal to your work.

A good video that covers the basic theory we discussed in class.


wk5: Perspective Notes

Hello class,

Remember, in perspective drawing,  your eye line and the horizon line are one and the same.  The horizon is always across from you, no matter how high up or low down you are.


Anything below your eyes is below the horizon line and anything above is above the horizon.  Think of it like looking up or down with a camera.


Following note is a good summary of what we covered.

wk5: Drawings

Hello Class,

Some examples of work completed in week 5.  For your journals this week you may want to approach perspective in different ways, such as drawing big and small objects (chairs to buildings) and or drawing an interior of a room. Remember two perspective objects can be placed within a one perspective room.

Perspective can also be used to create a heightened sense of depth in other objects such as people or animals. See the course Pinterest for ideas

wk5: Perspective Tutorial

Hello class,

Absolutely one of my favorite drawing instructors, I have taken courses with Tony O’Regan at Emily Carr. Below are a few videos of his on perspective. If you go to his website, you will find many.
