One Point Perspective Week…

Monday 5th December:

In the morning session we did Photoshop on the macs which for me was more of a recap session on how to use Photoshop. However I learned a few new techniques such as learning to add lighting to a plain wall.

Later on we had a theory session which was our introduction into our new project ID Place. We were asked to look at a building on 32 Cambridge Street and here are a few photos I took of the location:

I also did some drawings of interesting sections of the building:

Tuesday 6th December:

We started one point perspective drawings by doing simple 3D boxes in perspective.

After that we did two different views of a one point perspective which we populated with furniture and people.

I did one with circles on each wall as well:

For self directed work that session we were asked to add colour and tone to one of the perspective drawings and here is mine done on tracing paper:

Thursday 8th December:

In todays session I did an observational one point perspective of the Owen building, where I had to sit and draw. I chose my spot and started to add lines and anything I needed before I finished it off back at the flat.

Detailed version


I improved my one point perspective drawing during this week by having more practice doing them freehand. I needed this week to have more practice on the skill which I struggled to achieve before.
