I love how artists can create worlds all their own—using the hills and valleys of a beautiful landscape or the sensuous curves of the human form. Even so, artists who can learn to incorporate linear perspective into their work and use perspective drawing to create the look and feel of 3D drawings has the potential to transport a viewer to another place, almost as if their painted world was real.

Gil Gorski is a trained architect and fine-art painter. His work is made up of surreal architectural spaces akin to M.C. Escher’s and imagined cityscapes from ancient times.

Herb Rather is another artist inspired by architecture, but he works in a different vein. He documents the historic

Victorian homes of Texas and California, as well as the French Gothic cathedrals he’s seen on his travels abroad. Rather makes the intricacies of architecture beautiful and interesting. Each of these artists uses his knowledge of linear perspective in different ways, building a world that no one else could dream up.

If you can learn how to draw perspective, you can create a convincing sense of space, and that means you can paint and draw the world as you see it, or build a new one as you imagine it.

Our perspective drawing and cityscape painting knowledge come together in Cityscapes: Paint Urban Landscapes in Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor and Pastel, which reveals the crucial building blocks of cityscape drawing and painting and includes exercises on the more complex configurations involved with composition, form, and perspective. With these skills under your belt the possibilities for taking your art in exciting and uncharted directions are pretty much endless. Bon voyage!
