How to Draw a Kitchen Room in 2-Point Perspective: NARRATED

Hello and welcome to my new Circle Line
Art School video how to a room in 2-Ponit Perspective, for this drawing we
need to start with a horizontal line that goes through a rectangle, the room
we draw will fill the rectangle, the second step is to draw two dots on
this horizontal line which are outside the rectangle and they can be anywhere
on the horizontal line, one on the left hand side and one on the right hand side, these two dots of the vanishing points, the third step in this drawing is to
draw two diagonal lines from the vanishing point on the left to go to the
vertical line of the rectangle on the right, these will be the top and bottom of the
wall of the room on the right and they need to go to the vanishing point so
that the perspective of two point perspective will work, the fourth step in this drawing is to
draw a vertical line somewhere in the center of your page that goes between
the two diagonal lines that we’ve just drawn, this will be the corner of the
room the fifth step of this drawing is to
draw two more diagonal lines this time from the vanishing point on the right
and they need to touch the top and bottom of the vertical line that we just
drawn and they also need to stop on the left-hand vertical line of the rectangle,
these two lines will be useful because they will be the left hand side of the
room, the left-hand wall of the room that we are drawing, now hopefully if you look
carefully at the drawing that you’re making, you’ll see that there are two walls, one on
the left and one of the right, within the rectangle, but they followed the rule of
going to the vanishing points so now we can create some furniture or
work surfaces this can be kitchen, so we just can do
some three-dimensional blocks and with each of these three dimensional blocks,
which are going to be work services and things like that in the kitchen, the vertical lines need to stay vertical
and the parallel lines which are going away from us will even go to the left vanishing point or to the right
vanishing point, this is because all of the objects in
this room are going to be at right angles to each other, it just makes it easier to do it that
way, all the up right lines are going to be parallel to the vertical upright lines
of the rectangle and then all of the diagonal lines, all of them, will go even
to the left vanishing point or to the right vanishing point, now with this drawing like
any other it’s always best to do the basic shapes
first, once you’ve got the basic shapes put in,
then you can start to think about details later on, the placing of these
objects is quite important but I can move a line to the left or
right to create the cube exactly where I want it so that is overlapping maybe a
cube or door frame behind it and that’s overlapping quality, just by wearing
place the objects, will also help make the image look more three dimensional because you have some objects which are
clearly behind other objects and that will be in the objects in the foreground
will come forward more and the objects in the background will recede and go
back more in your drawing, once you’ve got to a certain stage, we will
focus on the center of the rectangle you can just use an erasor and rub out the guidelines which go to the vanishing points and now we’ve got a drawing with clearer lines, we can add some more details to it so, on the area on the left I’ll make a tall
sort of cabinet area and again the vertical lines vertical and just
choosing how high I want that to go maybe to the top of the ceiling I think
I’ll make it go a little bit lower we’re speeding the video along here a
little bit, I will put in maybe a window here and that can be tucked behind the
cabinet thing that I’ve just drawn and I with something else here in the
corner as well, but maybe I’ll go back to the window and just had a little bit
more details to the window, so we get some sort of thickness to the window
frame and that will start to give us some more scale so we can judge how big and small things
are and again to the door, to put a frame around the door, will enable the drawing to be easily
read in proportions, just straightening some of these lines a little bit make,
them darker and we can start putting on maybe some doors, so just dividing some
of the shapes up so that there are cabinets and doors, maybe around the edge of the work top,
work surfaces I could just draw a line underneath the
line that we’ve already got, so that’s just sort of copying a mark that we have already drawn, which is always quite satisfying to do, I think, and that will give some unity
to these shapes in this kitchen and then from this stage if we just pull
back and see how it relates to the vanishing points you can see that it’s still following
the rules of when the diagonal lines going to left or the right vanishing
point and all the vertical lines staying upright so the right here I’ll draw a cooker and maybe
an extractor fan or something like that above the cooker and again working at
the base of that, which is higher than the horizon, line so we’re looking up to it and it’s following the rules of two
point perspective, which is everything’s got to go to one of these two points, oftentimes people are confused about
where the two points in the perspective drawing can go, as long as down the
horizon and far apart it really will make a difference to what
the drawing looks like but it will always work as long as they’re on the
horizon far apart, so here I put a little cabinet in the
corner of the room and there hasn’t got much perspective because it’s very near
the horizon line and therefore the diagonal parallel lines are almost
parallel to the horizon line but they’re not quite, the sort of tape a little bit
to left, and they also taper a little bit to the
right, whereas the things in the foreground
will taper a bit more, I think on this thing in the
foreground, if I draw two lines going up from the
center of it, and then work out where they would stop
if they’re on the ceiling, they could be two lights which are hanging down, so I’m really doing guidelines to help me find out where they go and then
once I have chosen where I want to put them, I will draw two ellipses, which is just
circles seen from the side and make them into two lights and then
darken the line above so they’re hanging from the ceiling, so to do that I found out where they
would relate to the surface below first, so here I will probably put a few details, maybe a bowl of fruit I could
put in the foreground or an apple or something simple like that maybe another
one here and maybe a little mug or cup, something like that, so you can put anything you want, when you get to this stage of a drawing
you can just add smaller and smaller things, so for this drawing up put lots of
cabinets and some tiles in the background and things like that and then through the door I’ve put another room and I’ve put a landscape through the window and added a few more details, and then I went over all the lines using a black
felt-tip pen, the next stages I’ll add some color and for this I’m just using
some simple color pencils and I’ll start with a soft green in the background and
then jump forwards and speed up the video this bit and add some yellow and
some red and then add a few shadows, thinking about where the light sources
is, so that the light is coming from one or maybe two directions, and then it creates
shadows we need it to be, and then just pushing it forward a
little bit and work on the tones, keeping it so it’s still a line drawing, but it has
color and tonal values to it as well. Thank you very much for watching this

  1. you are such a wonderful human for making these videos. i have felt so challenged with perspective, that i have bought books on the subject and could never truly grasp its concepts. thanks to your videos and gentle voice i have began to understand and create my own works of art. i truly cant thank you enough. thank you for existing !

  2. You explain it so well! I deal with art a lot on a day to day basis but I'm shite at drawing or painting because no one ever explained to me the technicalities of translating what I see into a 2-dimensional medium. Thank you filling those gaps, you helped me a lot!

  3. Maravilloso tutorial! Paso a paso, aprendiendo a dibujar en perspectiva y a dimensionar correctamente. Gracias!!

  4. Thank you for all the tutorials, I don't know how to draw anything but I've been able to start drawing the rooms in my house before moving out and it looks pretty cool using two point perspective!!

  5. omg this was such a massive help..can you do some videos on rendering the objects?? please that would be a great help to me ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. This is an amazing tutorial. I was wondering if you could make a three point perspective drawing inside of a room? I've been puzzled by this all year X) Thank you!

  7. Thank you very much for your marvelous drawing lesson. I have done one point perspective bedroom, struggling at the beginning also. With two point perspective kitchen, your simple step by step guide helps me a lot! Thanks a lot again!
