Simple Perspective Worksheet - Distance

This Free simple perspective worksheet is ideal for young students or beginners who are trying to develop their art skills in landscape and interior drawing. I created this little handout for my young art students.

You may print the worksheet below by highlighting it and sending it to your printer or saving to your device and printing later. Some people find it easier to drag the image to the desktop and print from there. If you have problems printing see the how to print tab above or try the link below the image.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT:  If your drawings do not turn out the way you were hoping do not give up, learning to draw takes practice. Draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back to this blog often and try some of my other projects.

Simple Perspective of Distance.

Illustration 1. is some poles beside a road. The poles in the foreground are larger; their tops and bottoms go higher and lower than the ones behind. Each pole in the row is shorter than the one before, its base is higher on the page and it's top is lower on the page. As they approach the vanishing point they become closer together. The last is the smallest. In the real world, the poles are the same size but in the plain of the picture, they look smaller as they recede.

Illustration 2.is some steps leading up. The step in the foreground is bigger by being wider and taller than the ones behind it in distance). The next step is more narrow on the sides and lower on the top just slightly. Each step becomes more narrow and shorter than the one before (below) it.

Illustration 3. is some hills. The hill in the foreground dominates the lower third of the example because it is closer. The hills behind it are not so big, this impression is created by the hill be drawn narrower than the one before it, the hill behind is even more narrow and the last hill is almost on top of the one in front of it. Each hill has less space between it and the ones before as they recede toward the horizon.
