Single Point Perspective Drawing of a Street
When you understand single point perspective, you can do a lot of things. I remember when it finally clicked for me, and I recently did a simple art class with young kids on the subject, which led me to make a step-by-step perspective drawing of a street.
Basic Building Structure
Next, choose a good location for your first building and draw a nice vertical line to indicate the edge. Next, choose a location for your second building and draw a vertical line, as well as a horizontal line for the base of the building on the side facing the viewer. To draw the roof, place the ruler approximately where the blue vertical line would end on top, and then draw a diagonal line going to the horizon.
Windows, Doors and Other Fun Stuff
If you’re adding a door on the side facing the street, it will have vertical lines and lines moving toward the vanishing point. I added color coding to each line to make it easier to understand what’s going on. If you’d like to see how to draw a simple tree, click here.

Why do you use 1 point perspective to draw buildings?
One point perspective is a drawing technique that depicts how objects appear to shrink as they get further away, eventually converging on a single ‘vanishing point’ on the horizon line. It is a method of drawing objects on a flat piece of paper (or other drawing surface) so that they appear three-dimensional and realistic.
What are the 3 types of perspective drawing?
One-point perspective, two-point perspective, and three-point perspective are the most common types of perspective drawings.
What are the 3 main characteristics of one point perspective?
The vanishing point, the horizon line, and the frontal planes are some of the most fundamental concepts to grasp.
What is 4point perspective?
Four-point perspective, also known as infinity point of view, is a curved version of two-point perspective that can represent a 360-degree panorama and even scenes that are impossible to imagine.
What is 2point perspective?
Parallel lines along an object’s width and depth are represented as meeting at two separate points on the horizon that are 90 degrees apart as measured from the common intersection of the lines of projection.
How many vanishing points does two point perspective have?
Two-point perspective is defined as a drawing with two vanishing points on the horizon line, which can be placed anywhere along the horizon in an illustration.
What are perspective drawings?
Perspective drawing is a technique for creating the linear illusion of depth, in which objects appear to shrink in size as they get further away from the viewer. The box in the sketch below appears solid and three-dimensional thanks to the use of perspective.
