One point perspective

One point perspective is one of the easiest perspective drawing styles available. The reason for this is that all lines lead to a single point, and regardless of how complex your object is, it's easy to realize when you've made a mistake, and just as easy to correct it.

Some Important Rules
Before we jump in, there are some important rules to keep in mind when drawing in one point perspective.
  • All vertical construction lines are parallel to one another;
  • All horizontal construction lines are parallel to one another;
  • Given the lack of a second and third vanishing point, this perspective relies on orthogonal construction lines;
  • This style of perspective, although convincing, is not always accurate. 

When to Use One Point Perspective

.Due to the simplicity of this style of perspective, you can quickly convey an idea in a convincing manner, without wasting too much time. Also, although not the most accurate means of perspective rendering, this style is very easily understood by the human brain, and hence also easily understandable by anyone, not just those that studied architecture or technical drawing.

Personally, I recommend using this style of perspective for the following scenarios:
  • Architectural interiors of long rooms, and architectural landscapes.
  • Object concepts,
  • Concept art.  

    ACTIVITY  Now you are going to draw your street in one vanishing point. Start by defining the vanishing point in your sheet and then draw the main lines that will lead to the point.
