Perspective in Landscape Drawing

with Patrick Connors
Master linear perspective and learn to draw landscapes accurately using simple tools and classic techniques.

A seasoned instructor of linear perspective, Connors shares a brief overview of the significance and history of perspective in art, then leads you through a series of drawing exercises designed to strengthen your perceptual skills and explore compositional strategies. You'll see how these strategies have been employed by other artists and learn how to make your own compositional tools. Using a model landscape, you'll refine your ability to visualize a scene then explore atmospheric perspective by building up a sketch with tonal masses.

Thanks for such an informative class! And in helping me look at things in a new way!"
