Perspective

Perspective is "the the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point." Historically, perspective was considered the cornerstone of education in art and design, the mathematical knowledge to invent believable spaces and objects. The brick and mortar hand skills associated with perspective have been largely replaced by computers. As a drawing historian I'm practicing and preserving these methodologies. Most of these drawings are preparatory works for oil paintings of their subjects, see Landscape and Mechanism to view these paintings.

All drawings in this section are graphite on paper, none exceeding 24 x 36 inches. This area is still under construction. Return soon to see updates.
