This is a short quiz on Perspective Drawing vocabulary and concepts.

• 1.

### The _______________________ is the point at whicih parallel lines appear to come together.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

Vanishing Point

• C.

One-Point Perspective

• D.

Two-Point Perspective

• E.

Eye Level

B. Vanishing Point
Explanation
The vanishing point is the point at which parallel lines appear to come together. In linear perspective, objects that are farther away from the viewer appear smaller and converge towards the vanishing point. This creates a sense of depth and distance in a two-dimensional image. In one-point perspective, all lines converge towards a single vanishing point on the horizon line. In two-point perspective, there are two vanishing points, typically located on the horizon line. Eye level refers to the height at which the viewer's eye is positioned in relation to the scene.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### The height from which the viewer sees the scene is his/her _________________.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

Vanishing Point

• C.

One-Point Perspective

• D.

Two-Point Perspective

• E.

Eye Level

E. Eye Level
Explanation
Eye level refers to the height at which the viewer sees a scene. It is the point of view from which the scene is observed, typically at the same height as the viewer's eyes. This perspective allows the viewer to perceive the objects and elements in the scene as they would appear in real life, without any distortion or exaggeration. The eye level is an important factor in creating a sense of realism and depth in a visual composition.

### _______________________ is a tool that allows artists to create an illusion of depth on their page. It imitates human vision, which sees parallel lines leading away as eventually coming together (or getting farther away).

• A.

Liner Perspective

• B.

Vanishing Point

• C.

One-Point Perspective

• D.

Two-Point Perspective

• E.

Eye Level

A. Liner Perspective
Explanation
Linear perspective is a tool that allows artists to create an illusion of depth on their page. It imitates human vision, which sees parallel lines leading away as eventually coming together (or getting farther away). This technique is achieved by using a vanishing point, where all the lines converge, and it can be executed in different ways such as one-point perspective or two-point perspective.

### When using ___________________________, the artist establishes a horizon line and creates ONE vanishing point on it, where all lines converge.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

Vanishing Point

• C.

One-Point Perspective

• D.

Two-Point Perspective

• E.

Eye Level

C. One-Point Perspective
Explanation
One-Point Perspective is a technique used in art where the artist establishes a horizon line and creates a single vanishing point on it. This vanishing point is where all lines in the artwork converge, creating the illusion of depth and distance. This technique is often used to create realistic and accurate representations of three-dimensional objects on a two-dimensional surface.

• 5.

### When using ___________________________, the artist establishes a horizon line and creates TWO vanishing points on it, where all lines converge through TWO sets of orthagonal lines.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

Vanishing Point

• C.

One-Point Perspective

• D.

Two-Point Perspective

• E.

Eye Level

D. Two-Point Perspective
Explanation
In two-point perspective, the artist establishes a horizon line and creates two vanishing points on it. These vanishing points are where all lines converge through two sets of orthogonal lines. This technique is used to create the illusion of depth and three-dimensionality in a two-dimensional artwork. By using two-point perspective, the artist can accurately represent objects and spaces as they appear in reality, giving the viewer a sense of realism and depth in the artwork.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### ___________________is an illusion of depth that an artist can create by drawing/painting one object in front of another object by covering parts of the further object.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

High & Low Placement

• C.

Overlapping

• D.

Size

• E.

Aerial Perspective

C. Overlapping
Explanation
Overlapping is an illusion of depth that an artist can create by drawing/painting one object in front of another object and covering parts of the further object. This technique gives the impression that one object is closer to the viewer than the other, creating a sense of depth and dimension in the artwork. By strategically overlapping objects, the artist can convey a three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### ______________________ is an illusion of depth that an artist can create by placing closer objects lower on the page, and farther objects higher on the page.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

High & Low Placement

• C.

Overlapping

• D.

Size

• E.

Aerial Perspective

B. High & Low Placement
Explanation
High & Low Placement is the correct answer because it refers to the technique used by artists to create the illusion of depth in a two-dimensional artwork. By placing objects that are closer to the viewer lower on the page and objects that are farther away higher on the page, the artist can create a sense of distance and depth. This technique is commonly used in landscape paintings or drawings to create a realistic representation of space.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### _____________________ is an illusion of depth that an artist can create by using details and distinctive marks on objects that are closer on the page, and using fuzzy and undetailed marks for objects that are further away.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

High & Low Placement

• C.

Overlapping

• D.

Size

• E.

Aerial Perspective

E. Aerial Perspective
Explanation
Aerial perspective is an illusion of depth that an artist can create by using details and distinctive marks on objects that are closer on the page, and using fuzzy and undetailed marks for objects that are further away. This technique mimics the way that objects appear in the atmosphere, where distant objects appear less detailed and have a bluish or grayish tint due to the scattering of light. Aerial perspective helps to create a sense of distance and depth in a two-dimensional artwork.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### _____________________ can be used as an illusion of depth by making closer objects appear larger in proportion, and farther objects appear smaller in proportion.

• A.

Linear Perspective

• B.

High & Low Placement

• C.

Overlapping

• D.

Size

• E.

Aerial Perspective

D. Size
Explanation
Size can be used as an illusion of depth by making closer objects appear larger in proportion, and farther objects appear smaller in proportion. This technique, known as size perspective, is commonly used in art and design to create a sense of distance and depth in a two-dimensional space. By manipulating the size of objects, artists can create a visual hierarchy and guide the viewer's perception of depth in a composition.

### Mrs. Fromal  is the best art teacher you've ever had.

• A.

Yes.

• B.
