Every artist knows about perspective.
The "Art Definition" of Perspective
The meaning of perspective used in art
involves creating an appearance of depth.
This emphasis on distance
stems from it being a difficult
and impressive effect to achieve,
especially upon paper that is completely flat.
We are attempting to convey a sense of reality
with space and depth
on something which has none.
As such, the typical "art definition" of perspective has become:
"the technique of representing a three-dimensional image
on a two-dimensional surface."
I painted a quick watercolor piece representing basic perspective.
I'm still learning about it.
But the most important thing I believe about perspective is...
you don't have to have good perspective to have good art.
I believe composition is more important.
What do you think about perspective?
What is most important to you?
