1.Six Different ways to create an illusion of space - Linear Perspective: Linear Perspective is the system that creates depth by illustrating lines and dimension on a flat surface, and all objects lie parallel to the horizon. For the examples of linear perspective are 1 point perspective, 2 point perspective, and 3 point perspective. - Overlapping: This happens when one object is in front of another object. By doing the overlapping, the object which is behind will be blocked the view because of the object which is in front of it which looks like there is a distance between two objects and create the illusion of space. For example, if a man is in front of the woman and block the view of the woman, it can be said as…show more content…
In the picture, if one tree is positioned lower than another, it means the one which is placed lower is meant to be closer. - Color and Value: An object which is closer is appeared to be darker and warmer. An object which is far is appeared to be lighter and cooler. For example, in a picture, if mountains are drawn darker and coloured in warmer colour, they are meant to be closer. - Detail: The object which is closer will show more detail than the one behind and far. For example, if there are two books which are left opened, people can read the letters on the book if the book is closer, but it is hard to read if the book is far from the observer. 2.Characteristics of Perspective There are two main characteristics of perspective drawing. The first one is that the three-dimensional objects can be drawn on the two-dimensional plane using the perspective technique, and it can create the illusion of space on the flat surface by using the fact that the object is being smaller as the observer is moving far from it. Also, different types of the linear perspective also allow the observer to look at the object from different angles. For example, in the two-point perspective drawing, the viewer can observe the object in the view from the corner. The second characteristic is that the perspective drawings are foreshortened. Foreshortened means that the distance of the object is shown shorter than the real distance because the viewer is watching the
