A view to bring in closer trees, etc Figures and faces With figures and faces you are presented with your biggest challenge. They are, at one and the same time, both the most satisfying and the most difficult things that you will have to draw.

Here, and overleaf, are two of the basic systems of perspective for you to look at. 21BD1AF1-BA62-4ACF-868F-588A423B525B One-point perspective shows the apparent objects (blocks on the ground or in the air, and cylinders placed vertically or lying on the ground) with all the vertical poles diminishing in size as they proceed along the limiting lines of perspective towards a central vanishing point lying in the centre of the horizon.

You must include the background here because glass is defined by the fact that the background colour will show through.
