**Perspective, Solves Major Drawing Problems!**

Drawing cityscapes, landscapes, scenes or even basic cubes or pyramids can be challenging to an artist. The solution is perspective drawing. This is the next step in your journey to learn to draw and paint. Perspective will help you draw any object or scene by explaining why it looks the way it does so you can then draw. Though this is the beginning concepts of perspective it will solve many of your most fundamental drawing obstacles.

Perspective affects everything in the world around us. If you try to draw the world around you with knowing how perspective affects the objects it can be very difficult. By learning perspective you will be able to analyze the challenges perspective presents with and then more easily find the solutions to draw the scene effectively. Understanding perspective is the path to intermediate and advanced drawing. It will change how you see and draw the world around you.

We also learn to draw basic houses and many other objects using these perspective drawing principles.
