Perspective is to drawing what grammar is to writing and scales are to music. It provides a structure to art by dictating where objects must be placed and which directions the angles go to achieve that vital third dimension of depth. From one-point, two-point and three-point perspective, we move on to circles, shadows, and reflections. Best of all you don’t have to be an artist to draw well in perspective — when you know how to use the tools, they do the drawing for you.
