Understanding perspective is a skill every artist needs. Three point perspective requires a little more skill but is very useful when you understand how it works. This art tutorial explores how to create accurate shadows created by buildings etc., using three point perspective. Starting with a building drawn using two point perspective another vanishing point is created for the sun.
Using this vanishing point and another one directly beneath the sun on the eye level, I explain step by step how to plot the lines from these vanishing points through each wall of the building to create a point. Joining theses points creates the shadow. It can be a little difficult to understand at first, but if your persevere, this drawing skill will improve your drawing and painting skills.
The video is designed for beginners, school children and those wishing to understand perspective more fully.

Are you an Artist?
At Paul Priestley’s Art World, we believe being an artist is a twofold process. It’s a combination between skills, techniques, creativity and the ability to see things in a way others often can’t. Some people become obsessed with learning the techniques of drawing and painting, but that only takes you so far. Passion, the creativity to experiment and make mistakes is far more important.
You will become an artist if …
You remember that no one in the world draws and paints like you do. Be proud of the fact. As an artist seek an individual vision, don’t let anyone say you haven’t got that. Or tell you that your art work is not relevant or good enough – what do they know! Paul Priestley art tutorials are taught with lots of passion, creativity and with a simple step by step approach to drawing that will inspire everyone. Our art tutorials will help you create your individual vision.
