Back to the Creative Drawing course and this week's exercise is all about exploring multiple perspectives by creating a composition with a variety of simultaneous viewpoints. Here my drawing is divided into sections to create a series of small drawings within a drawing. Each section represents a different angle or perspective of the subject (one of my son's LEGO creations).
The inspiration for this exercise comes from an etching by Giambattista Piranesi (1761) (below left) "Diagram of temple construction" where multiple perspectives are presented within a single format. He shows the enlarged construction details in the top and bottom panels. Well... I can't really compare a drawing of LEGO to one of a great temple... but nonetheless I enjoyed this simple exercise - it reminded me of technical drawing activities from school ...
