City Sketching 4 Using Perspective Grid For Two-Point Perspective

The perspective grid scheme works for box-like objects with the same melting points. It means, all of them are placed in chessboard order, like the house blocks on the boring regular street - all the front sides are parallel to each other.

If you know already what is the line of the horizon, what is vanishing or melting point and which lines are known as orthogonal or convergence lines, you can dive little deeper into the practice of perspective drawing.
I invite you to discover one more of my trick: using the perspective grid. The perspective grid makes the work with a two-point perspective much easier and I'll explain how it works and how to apply it in practice.
I'm going to show you how to use a perspective grid in a sketch from life in case of the two-point perspective scheme. With the help of a perspective grid system, you'll draw a perfect sketch. So, I'll show you all the processes step-by-step.
In the previous video, we made work on main geometrical shapes using the perspective grid and added light shading to make the volume more visible. Now we are going to do the rest of the work on the sketch - all the details, trees, and patterns.

In the two-point perspective scheme, our line of sight is directed diagonally relatively to the bases of the buildings. And we have two melting points: one from the left, another from the right, each one for one set of the parallel lines. Only lines of the vertical set are vertical. This type of linear perspective has its flaw: usually, both melting points are far away outside of our sketch page.

To deal with this kind of problem, we use the perspective grid. In this case, we adjust the orthogonal lines not to the melting points but to sidelines of our grid, which are inside of our page.

Requirements

You don’t need any experience in drawing. And a minimum drawing set: sketchbook, pencils, and eraser is enough. Also, we use our gridded device and we need a snap-off knife to cut a strip of paper for measuring angles.

Hello, my name is Evgeniy Stasenko. I am an artist from Moscow now living in Barcelona. I graduated from Moscow Pedagogical University, Fine Arts & Graphic Department and have practiced both fine arts and teaching ever since, for more than 30 years by now.

As a teacher, I have always aimed at creating an integral system, a consistent range of methods that would allow me to effectively teach drawing and painting to any person regardless of skills. These methods come as the result of experience; they are tested in practice and proven to give fast results. As well, I have extensive experience in creating specific short-term courses, not to mention fine art workshops, etc.

I wrote some textbooks. “The Art School” and a course of three books on Developing Drawing for primary aged kids are available only in Russian now. My book "Composition of a Picture: Theory and Exercises" is available on Amazon both in Russian and in English. The subject of artistic composition given in a clear and logical way – it is really useful. This theory is unknown outside Russia and English translation helps to improve the situation.

In 1994 I got an award of the All-Russia Exhibition Center for teaching.

In 2006 my biography was published in the encyclopedia Who is Who in Russia. 

In 2015 I moved to Spain.
