"Perspective doesn't need to be difficult. I prefer to break it down into a few easy concepts that (when followed) will always give you the best results. When you understand these few principles, drawing in perspective becomes easy."
When learning how to draw, most people stumble when it comes to perspective.
That is mostly because it is usually taught in technical drawing classes, where you need to be a mathematician to be able to work it out. Artists usually don't work in this way, and so learning perspective often gets put in the "too hard" basket for artists.
It doesn't need to be difficult. When we break the concepts down, there are only a few important things to remember when it comes to perspective.
Once we understand and follow those few concepts, then drawing in perspective suddenly gets a whole lot easier.
In this course I break down those concepts into relatable lessons that are easy to follow.
This will change the way that you think about drawing and you'll be amazed at what you can achieve!
