# 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.

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.

## Class 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.
