How Ellipses Change When They Change Height on the Page Animation

by | Nov 8, 2021

Video Category:

This is a short animation that will show you what curves look like if they are above the horizon line, below the horizon line or at the horizon line and how curves look as they move up and down the page. This is a great example for understanding how to draw and paint still lives, as cups, bowls and plates all have circular openings or curved shapes in perspective.


This will also complement my earlier video, How Curves Change When Eye Level Changes
