Getting back to my series of articles re-living the Palladian Odyssey tours in May this year… I want to share a little today about how perfect a Palladian villa is for learning perspective sketching.
Whenever I teach perspective I look for a simple building with a few basic volumes which is sitting on flat ground. It is surprisingly hard to find buildings that fit this bill and that also have a shaded area opposite, so that a group can sit there while sketching.
In the second tour this year, I managed to have a few spare minutes to do this sketch in which showed the group how I use the principles without doing the setup.
There are only a few places left in both tours so please check out the website for more details.
