About the Artist:
Ken never realized he has the passion to doodle and sketch only at the age of 16 when he started drawing an eggplant during an art lesson. Since then he did not look back. He went on to NAFA to pursue in Interior Design and graduated. Eventually set up his own interior design practice thereafter.

Ken is a hoarder of sketchbooks and art supplies that can last him a lifetime (have stopped buying). His preference sketching tools & medium are fountain pens with extra fine nibs & bulletproof ink, refillable water brushes, watercolours and a polaroid printer to record his sketch journey.

Ken recently discovered that he has a sweet tooth for cakes and start picking up café sketching.

Ken can draw, so Ken you.

About the Workshop:
In general, it means having a certain viewpoint on how to show a 3D object on the 2D plane (your drawing). We begin with a basic overview of the conceptual tools like grids, horizon and varnishing points. I will be taking it slow and explaining how and why you are doing each step when incorporating perspectives.

- One point Perspective (OPP)
How to draw building/ scene in one point perspective and takes you through the task of drawing a few simple blocks that are positioned along, above or below the horizon line, using one varnishing point. As we move on we could add items and forms around like plants, trees etc.

- Two Points Perspective (TPP)
Moving on the next angle is the understanding two point perspective using two vanishing point as anchors that we use create a 3D (building) object on a 2D (our sketch book) plane. The placement and relationship between these two points will dictate an object’s position in 3D space. We would discover more on scale, foreground/ background and add more details into the sketch.

- Which One To Use?
The type of linear perspective used depends largely on the vantage point of the viewer. If the view of most of the geometric shapes in the scene are "flat", then one point perspective may be the best choice. If the corners of objects are prevalent, then two point perspective may be the best solution. If the view is extreme, from above or below, then the best choice may be to use three point perspective.
