(Studying Composition means Learning Painting. There are no other ways to learn painting than this approach. I am planning to post 200 composition Notes in the next 300 days)

Perspective is a very important subject every art student has to learn. Many art students try to ignore it. They feel it’s a tedious subject and there is no fun and excitement. But once you learn the subject it will be fun to work with it. The results will surprise you. Without perspective knowledge artist’s paintings will appear weak and lacking strength. If a student wants true excitement from his work it’s better to learn perspective. Lot of books are available to learn it.

Here I am giving a quote from Leonardo da Vinci ….

‘ There are three aspects to perspective. The first has to do with how the size of objects seems to diminish according to distance: the second, the manner in which colors change the farther away they are from the eye; the third defines how objects ought to be finished less carefully the farther away they are.’
