Non- linear Perspective

Perspective is a system of creating an illusion of depth on a flat surface. With Non- linear perspective students do not use a horizon line and vanishing points; they rely on position placing and color variation.

Students have drawn two city skylines on drawing paper; they will now begin to add color using tempera as a medium.
