Perspective In Art #1 - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki

Art students learn early on what
perspective both linear and aerial
means by dint of practice

Vanishing point on the horizon
imaginary and real as students
draw vertical lines angling
toward a consummation
at some distant point

Pencil and a straight edge suffice
next - you draw cylinder skeletons
enclosed in graphite boxes
like square and rectangular
lead coffins floating
on drawing paper

Finally the lesson ends
with a pen & india ink
rendition of a still life -
three objects nestling
on bristol paper

And that's linear perspective!


in floating coffins of lead
