rietveld chair perspective construction

March 4th, 2012 § 1

This should explain the old-school constructive drawingtechnique.
From one plane map and a second height projection you’re able to draw any perspective. A simple cube to start practicing – see the fourth illustration. Try to do a few corner points from plane and side projections and finally the vanishing perspective of parallel lines. Point ‘A’ is done as an example. Draw the lines and you will understand. Visit the old-school paintings, that were done by this method.

High-end solutions.
Exercise a floating (vanishing) point of the chairs seat: draw a parallel line from the viewers eye which crosses the projection table (is on the canvas). Parallel to either one of the lines of the object. So each of parallel lines will float into the same ‘V’point (is the final construction of this point just like any other). However the backseat results in a point far beyond the canvas.
Try for rounded objects, circles en spheres. Parallel shading, central shading and mirroring. It all can be done in a constructive manner. Visit the old-school paintings, that were done by this method.
