We will touch this term the different ways to represent an object in technical drawing.One of them is the DIEDRIC SYSTEM. Lets get started with something easy, summarizing your knowledge from 1st ESO.Then we will practice with a few worksheets.
The wife of 15th-century Italian artist Paolo Uccello used to beg him to come to bed. She was fed up of him staying up all night drawing objects with the new method of 3D illusion – or as it was called at the time, "perspective". He still wouldn't come to bed. "This perspective is such a sweet thing," he said.
As you already know we live in a three-dimensional world:
1. Height, 2. Length 3.Depth
We can change or viewpoint, trasnforming the way we see things. That way objects seem to be smaller of bigger depending whether we are close or far away from them. The same way objects might seem to vanish or disappear when we move around them or we move away from them. Light also plays a very interesting role in the way we perceive objects.
3D OPTICAL ILLUSION
Viewpoint in Perspective
The Horizon Line in Perspective
Vanishing Lines in Perspective
One Point Linear Perspective
These are examples for our NEXT PROJECT (one point linear perspective):
These are a few videos and links to help you with your project:
Zentagle means ZEN (meditation) + TANGLE (knot, confusion, mess)
Zentangle art is a great way to start out now because (1) it's nearly
impossible to mess them up and they can be confidence boosters and (2)
it's a good way for me to assess what you already know about
the elements and principles and (3) you need something to calm you down in those moments of stress (previous to the exams).
Christmas are around the corner, and I heard the other day on the radio
that these holidays are not as benefitial for us as we might think. They
cause a lot of stress... Well I guess part of that stress is the
getting everything ready and the buying of the presents. So I suggest
for this Christmas:
LESS CONSUMERISM MORE CREATIVITY PLEASE.
For this activity you will choose an object, I suggested a plain white
mug in class (2 € or less in any Chinese shop) and permanent markers
(different thikness and colours if you want). Let's zentangle an object!
If you prefer to do someother creation (like a manga drawing or a Christmas decoration or a visual poem), feel free to do it, but make sure you
sign your creation and take a picture before giving it as a present. You
will print the photo and paste it in your notebook (Activities). If you
have difficulties printing it you can send me the photo via email,
please attach a comment describing the process and your evaluation of
