Building on Basics, Part 3

Drawing a circle in perspective and understanding how this methodology, as a transferable skill, can be use for drawing a range of spacial objects.

In this step you will learn how to draw a circle on the face of a block shape in two-point perspective. You will understand how to appreciate that the various shapes you are learning to draw can be used as a basis for drawing a wide range of three-dimensional shapes, objects and forms. A circular form, for example, could be the start of a whole in a wall, or a circular window in a building.

Many of the things we see around us are constructed from square and rectangular block shapes, triangular shapes and circular shapes. At this stage of the course you should start to be able to apply what you have learnt to drawing a range of your own forms.
