To draw in perspective is to draw space and objects like we see them. It's easy!!! We see big what is close to us. We see small what is far from us. But... what happens, around us, to the geometrical forms? Parallel lines seems to get closer... Straight lines seem to curve... What are the rules? In the end, how do we see?

Desenhar em perspectiva, é desenhar o espaço e os objectos tal qual os vemos. É fácil!!! Vemos maior o que está mais perto de nós.Vemos mais pequeno o que está mais longe de nós.Mas... o que acontece, à nossa volta, às formas geométricas? Linhas paralelas parecem aproximar-se. Linhas direitas parecem fazer curvas. Quais são as regras? No fim, como é que vemos?
