Linear Perspective


Concepts to know and practice

– MSP= Measuring, Sighting, and Perspective

– One must measure at all times throughout the drawing!!!!!
– If I find you not measuring, I will assume you are lazy or do not understand the concept.
– if you can see, you can measure.
– If you do not measure, you are guessing / inventing what you see (the results are a formless unstructured drawing)
– Measuring is honest and affective.
– Measuring saves you a considerable amount of time and frustration.
– Rather than drawing the same thing three times, you can measure and draw once.
– The carpenters golden rule: Measure twice, cut once
