Colleen showed us several examples of one point perspective (with a bit of 2 point) via paintings from Kathy Weber. What amazing paintings this artist has! I love her use of color-- her use of shading! It's just wonderful! Please check out her blog if you get the chance.
After all those wonderful examples, we were off to do a pencil drawing first of a one point perspective of a building disappearing into the one point on the horizon. Got out those rulers and we drew lines according to Colleen's directions. I ended up doing two different building (right next to each other-- one kind of in front of the other) working on the same one point of perspective. Nothing too elaborate but enough to get a feel for the concept. Next, we chose a photo that had a one point perspective to work on. I chose a black & white photo of a horse out at pasture. Here it is....
