Do you have perspective drawing knowledge? Anyone who is taking art classes will benefit from this quiz. According to this quiz, you should know the difference between one point and two-point perspective, what are the lines of an object that move from the front to the vanishing point, what is it called where the back of the image concludes or ends. This quiz will help you establish perspective drawing knowledge and ace an upcoming exam.

### The technique of showing depth in a picture by using a horizon line and two vanishing points on the horizon line is called:

• A.

One point perspective.

• B.

Two point perspective.

• C.

Converging perspective.

• D.

Horizon line.

B. Two point perspective.
Explanation
Two point perspective is the correct answer because it involves using a horizon line and two vanishing points on the horizon line to create the illusion of depth in a picture. In this technique, parallel lines in the scene appear to converge towards two different points on the horizon line, creating a sense of depth and distance in the artwork. This technique is commonly used in architectural and landscape drawings to create a realistic three-dimensional effect.

### How horizontal lines in perspective view of object are drawn?

• A.

Vertical

• B.

Horizontal

• C.

To a Focal Point

• D.

To a Vanishing Point

D. To a Vanishing Point
Explanation
In a perspective view of an object, horizontal lines are drawn to a vanishing point. This is because in perspective drawing, objects appear to get smaller as they recede into the distance. The vanishing point is the point on the horizon line where all parallel lines appear to converge. Therefore, to create a realistic representation of an object in perspective, the horizontal lines of the object should be drawn towards the vanishing point.

### Lines of an object that move from the front to the vanishing point on the horizon line in a composition using perspective are called.

• A.

Common lines.

• B.

Juxtaposition.

• C.

Converging lines.

• D.

Vanishing points.

C. Converging lines.
Explanation
In a composition using perspective, lines of an object that move from the front towards the vanishing point on the horizon line are referred to as converging lines. This term is used because these lines appear to converge or come together at a single point on the horizon, creating a sense of depth and distance in the artwork.

### Point on the Horizon line that all converging lines move back in space to are called:

• A.

Center point

• B.

Vanishing point

• C.

Converging point

• D.

Focal point

B. Vanishing point
Explanation
The vanishing point refers to the point on the horizon line where all the converging lines in a perspective drawing appear to meet. It is the point in the distance where parallel lines seem to converge or "vanish". This concept is commonly used in art and architecture to create a sense of depth and realism in two-dimensional representations.

### Line that moves from one side to the other that tells the viewer where the back of the image concludes or ends is called the:

• A.

Converging line.

• B.

Vanishing point

• C.

Line of sight.

• D.

Horizon line.

D. Horizon line.
Explanation
The horizon line is the correct answer because it refers to the line that separates the sky and the ground in an image. It indicates the viewer's eye level and helps create a sense of depth and perspective. The other options do not accurately describe the line that defines the back of the image or its relationship to the viewer's perspective.

### This is used to create the illusion of form or shape of an object such as a sphere.

• A.

Line and perspective.

• B.

Tonal value.

• C.

Camera obscura.

• D.

Vanishing point.

B. Tonal value.
Explanation
Tonal value refers to the range of lightness and darkness in an image. By manipulating the tonal values, artists can create the illusion of form or shape of an object, such as a sphere. By using light and dark shades, they can give the object a three-dimensional appearance, making it seem more realistic. The other options, line and perspective, camera obscura, and vanishing point, are all techniques or tools used in art, but they do not specifically relate to creating the illusion of form or shape.

### What technique is used to create three-dimensional look in a composition using straight lines?

• A.

Abstract Perspective

• B.

Linear Perspective

• C.

Atmospheric Perspective

• D.

Pointillism

B. Linear Perspective
Explanation
Linear perspective is a technique used to create a three-dimensional look in a composition using straight lines. It involves drawing objects in a way that their size and position are determined by their distance from the viewer. This technique creates the illusion of depth and space on a two-dimensional surface, giving the artwork a realistic and immersive quality. By using converging lines that meet at a vanishing point, artists can accurately depict the way objects appear to recede into the distance, enhancing the overall sense of depth in the composition.

### In a Two Perspective drawing where will the Vanishing Points be?

• A.

On the horizon

• B.

Below the horizon

• C.

Above the horizon

• D.

On vertical

A. On the horizon
Explanation
In a Two Perspective drawing, the vanishing points will be positioned on the horizon. The horizon line represents the viewer's eye level, and it is where parallel lines in the scene converge. Vanishing points are the points where parallel lines in the scene appear to converge, creating the illusion of depth and perspective. Placing the vanishing points on the horizon accurately represents the perspective and depth in the drawing.

### How many vanishing points will be there in a Zero point perspective drawing?

• A.

0

• B.

1

• C.

2

• D.

3

A. 0
Explanation
In a Zero point perspective drawing, there will be no vanishing points. This is because zero point perspective is a type of drawing where all lines are parallel and do not converge towards a single point. As a result, there are no vanishing points in this type of drawing.

### What is the correct option out of the following which lands the classification of perspective drawing:

• A.

Picture Planes

• B.

Ground Line

• C.

Station Points

• D.

Vanishing Points

D. Vanishing Points
Explanation
Vanishing points are the correct option that lands the classification of perspective drawing. In perspective drawing, vanishing points are the points on the horizon line where parallel lines appear to converge. They are used to create the illusion of depth and distance in a two-dimensional drawing, giving a sense of perspective and realism. By using vanishing points, artists can accurately portray how objects appear to recede into the distance, creating a three-dimensional effect on a flat surface.
