Spatial Drawing

If you want to draw figuratively and spatially, it is irrelevant whether you are dealing with still life, landscape, figure or architecture. All this is three-dimensional space, whose representation on the two-dimensional picture surface is subject to the laws of perspective, proportion, light and shadow.

This law applies to both the macrocosm and the microcosm.

We're learning:

  • understanding, analyzing and drawing geometric bodies and exterior / interior spaces
  • constructions with 1 and 2 vanishing points
  • dealing with the line, light and shadow
  • hatching, shortening, and perspective

That must be clear to us, conveyed and made aware. As long as I don't understand the space, even if I can design the surfaces with the most beautiful lines and hatchings, the drawing remains unsatisfactory.
