Their connection within the perspective view
(An illustrated pictogramm-lecture for second year students in 1995)


Introduction - "Role of staffage"
Spatial planes
Typical errors
Role of vegetation
Plant and building
Motivs of spatial planes
Expression of distances
Perspective through Hiding
Scale, egg and lavish
Moods (seasons)
Techniques (slope and relief)

1. The sense of adding of vegetation is to increase of space effect.

2. Space planes express distance (Illustration: Panorama of Gellért-Hill, 1978).

3. Pre-requisites of perspective picture.

4. Composition of perspective (Cut-out and hiding with slide frame.

5. Goal of tools is to focus attention to target's center.

6. Hiding and emphasizing (covering mistakes).

7. Scaling through environment (Choice of view-point and horizon).

8. Typical errors (Do not cover important parts!).

9. Correction of error via plant.

10. Linear plant delineation (see Buda Castle drawing) Bunches of vegetation.

11. Remote and near areas through linear techniques (Foreground even by solo leaves!).

12. Distance through lines (Outlines, follow-surface-technique).

13. Covering perspective (Simple line technique as most economic way of drawing).

14. Lavish (eggs and scale - spatial planes according to chess-field-effect).

15. Moods with staffage (Illustration: Snowy detached housing in Sweden 1973, feltpen).

16. White and black technique (Slope, layer line, relief, etc).
