Advanced Two- Point Perspective by Dick McConnell

Film in preparation.

If this is the first time you have attempted measured perspective using the Vertical Plane method, you may find it useful to try drawing a building in two point perspective first. Whilst a simple design, the ‘Global Exhibition Stand’ will give you the chance to draw curves and a sphere in perspective. The steps you will follow are almost identical to the drawing a building in two-point perspective, except that you will learn how to position objects within an interior space as though you were looking into the corner of a room. We have not provided the plan and elevations for the Global Stand, but suggest that at this stage you should be confident enough to use one of your own projects to draw up an image. Have fun!

Equipment and Materials:

  • Drawing board or table
  • Parallel motion or T-square
  • Scaled plan and section/elevations of the space you wish to draw
  • Grid plan and section/elevations to the same scale as you plan to draw your perspective grid
  • Tracing paper, Layout or cartridge
  • 0.5 Self propelling pencil (black and blue lead – blue will not show up on photocopies
  • Scale rule
  • Set square
  • Long ruler
  • Masking tape
  • Rubber
