Drawing Skills Week Seven

untitledThis week we looked at:

  • the relationships between plan, elevation and section. A plan will give important spatial information such as layout. The elevation and section add further information that cannot be obtained from the plan, such as the height of elements of an interior and the interior’s relationship with other spaces.  All three work together to give different types of information about the design.
  • two point interior and exterior perspective.
  • vanishing points.  Positioning a vanishing point inside the boundary of the image will give steep pitch lines. In interior drawing it is useful to have the vanishing point outside of the drawing.
  • isometric projections – all lines are symmetrical and not distorted by perspective.   Isometric drawings are useful to give a clear view of an interior.

Self-directed work:

  • to complete the drawings we began in the lesson
  • to colour code a line drawing indicating its two vanishing points (without looking at the example!):SONY DSC
  • to draw a two point perspective of the room layout that we used in the lesson
