A little while ago I blogged that I was trying to improve my grasp of perspective in drawing. Since then I have been working at it a fair bit and I can feel it starting to sink in. I had never realised in the past how useful it could be to to make you believe that everything in an image is in the same physical space. I have been trying to practise in my free time on journeys and such like. I can seldom draw with a steady line as the bus or train will be jiggling away like a good 'un. The joy of it is that doesn't seem to matter. I think these pictures, whether composed solely of figures or figures in a landscape, feel like they are happening somewhere. That is a really exciting development for me because for the longest time I have wanted to be able to make stories full of all kinds of places... I just had no clue how to draw them.
