Dimensional Perspective 1 Vanishing Point.

How to Paint Dimensional Perspective.

Taught by Clina Polloni.

You can learn and do this painting class at home in this difficult time of the Coronavirus. Follow the instructions:

Dimensional Perspective Drawing

Dimensional Perspective Drawing

This autumn painting is illustrated by the concept of convergence. Which are lines that moves into the distance and converge on a vanishing point. Our eyes perceive the world around us in three dimensions. To create this three-dimensional effect, we have to draw perspective that consist on a horizon line, where your eyes are looking to a vanishing point or two or three vanishing points. In this painting we only have one in the center of the horizon.

Picture #1: Start by drawing the horizon line, draw a vanishing point in the center (mark with a red dot). From this red dot, start drawing lines to the outside of the canvas, to the left and the right. 2 lines for the base of the trees. 2 lines for the road. 2 lines for the top of the trees. Continue by drawing the trees following the perspective lines.

Dimensional Perspective with Human Figure Drawing

Dimensional Perspective with Human Figure Drawing

Picture #2: Draw a human figure looking at the horizon and start painting the autumn trees, road and grass. Painting the background images first is a lot easier.

Picture #3: Paint the human figure and sign your painting.

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Drawing with Acrylics by Clina Polloni.

The Cherry Blossom Trees are in bloom! Let’s learn how to draw with acrylics.

This are difficult times for all of us, we have to stay home with the Coronavirus. Go outside, take your family and draw the beautiful flowers of Spring!

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Cherry Blossom Trees Drawing

Instructions of this drawing: 

  1. Go outside, in this painting is the back yard of my house. Select the flowers that you would like to paint. Do a pencil sketch.
  2. You can start by drawing in the canvas with a pencil using the Square Grid Drawing Technic. Start by dividing your sketch or photo in proportional squares, then you divide your canvas in with the same Technic in proportional squares. It doesn’t matter how big is your canvas or if it is a mural, the proportions will always be perfect.
  3. Use your acrylics with lots of water because they flow better, impregnating your canvas, don’t leave spots without paint. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you finish your final painting with oils or acrylics in the top, they look brighter.
  4. Apply a coat of washed Titanium White and Cerulean Blue over the area of the sky and a coat of washed Sap Green over the grass.
  5. Start drawing with Acrylics: Ivory Black: trunk of trees, house (including inside of windows) and details of landscape.
  6. With Titanium White and Yellow Ochre paint over house. Magenta for the flowers of the cherry blossom trees and Sap Green over the dogwood tree.
