Drawing a Mug with Perspective Instructions Video

Here is a 10-minute video that I created for my perspective drawing course this semester that is using the Exploring Perspective Hand Drawing book.  It has step by step instructions for drawing a mug shape and adding the mug handle using perspective drawing techniques.  Check out the finished drawing below. Enjoy!

Interior Sketch One Point Perspective

Class drawing 2One of the great things about teaching a perspective class is getting the opportunity to practice drawing an interior space.  The image above is a visual inspiration from my how to perspective drawing interiors book and has the added finishes and textures.  The bottom drawing shows some of the guidelines such as the box on the floor that the chairs are drawn from and the center vanishing point at the right bottom corner of the artwork.

One-Point Perspective Interior Sketch

Sofa Class Mar 16Super full teaching schedule this spring at the college.  One of my favorite classes is the Interior Design Drawing class that uses my perspective book.  So fun to be assisting students in developing their hand drawing skills.  Here is an in class sketch book activity drawing from last week.  Using a photograph for as a visual reference, we started with the rectangular shape of the bench front, or the the flat front and then established the vanishing point.  The bench top was added using the perspective guide lines, next the flat front of the sofa was drawn using the bench size to estimate the width and height.  From there we finished the sofa shape, added the bookshelf and played around with drawing the pillow shapes.   While finishing this drawing at the house, Mr. Leo wanted to over see the work!

Student Art Guide and One Point Perspective Drawing

Excited to find one of my illustrations in the Student Art Guide blog article called “One Point Perspective Drawing: The Ultimate Guide”.  Here is the description “This article contains everything an Art student needs to know about drawing in one point perspective. It includes step-by-step tutorials, lesson plans, handouts, videos and free downloadable worksheets.”   The blog specializes in articles helping art students excel and I found it an amazing resource for art instructions.  Check this out:

Window Seat Copic Coloring

Window Seat RenderingTaught a continuing education class called “Sketching for Design Solutions” last fall to a group of professional interior designers. This one-point perspective window seat image was one of the drawing activities.  I am just getting around to adding color with my Copic markers.  In this rendering I stepped out and used some brighter orange, yellow and purple hues.  The worksheet below was used for my visual color reference as I added color to the image.  I will usually start rendering an image with a small group of marker colors and then add more as I go.  I like to note the maker color numbers for quick reference in the future.

One-Point Perspective Window Seat Space

Window Seat DrawingI am always looking for techniques that are easy and fast for drawing one-point perspective interiors.  Here is a window seat space that has a bookshelf and an art gallery area.  A simple grid was set up using the steps that are outlined in my Exploring Perspective Hand Drawing, book, chapter 10, using a square grid formula

Note the two grids below. Each have a measured back wall with the vanishing point.  The wall on the left has a grid that has been created with the diagonal guide line.  This provides the proportions of the room in perspective where the objects appear to look larger as they come closer to the front.  The first grid was sketched quickly with numbers noted on the back wall.  The back wall was set up in a 1/2″ grid which is similar to an elevation wall.  The second is an abbreviated grid version and has only the basic lines which are the key points that can be used when creating the drawing.
