DRAWING A ROOM IN SINGLE POINT PERSPECTIVE

V. Ryan 2002-2008

 

Look at the room shown below. Furniture has been placed inside it and a colour scheme added. Follow the instructions lower down the page and draw the basic shape of a room - including furniture.

This animation shows the basic construction of a room.

   
 
   

Once you have mastered drawing individual pieces of furniture in single point perspective you will be ready to design a simple room which includes basic furniture. The same techniques are used whether drawing the skeleton of a room or the pieces of furniture going inside it. Use a single vanishing point and project guidelines back to it.

Draw a rectangle and project the corners back to a vanishing point. Remember, all lines should be faint at this stage.

   

Draw a rectangle which represents the back of the room. This must line up with the guidelines projected back to the vanishing point from the front rectangle.

   

Complete the basic room by rubbing out line A and darkening the outline of the entire room.
