One point perspective drawing - scale 1:20

"... a mathematical system for representing three-dimensional objectsand space on a two-dimensional surface by means of intersectinglines that are drawn vertically and horizontally and that radiate fromone point --- on a horizon line as perceived by viewer imagined in an arbitrarily fixed position." // dictionary.com

Alright, for this one, breathe. It's gonna be ok.

Our example display window is 3m width / 2m height / 1m depth, and was drawn in scale 1:20.

How many rulers does one drawing take?!

We also added a 50cmx160cm poster on the back wall (see the coloured area)

I am not gonna break down the whole process here, but I found this picture that maybe gives a clearer idea of what we are going for:

A grid like the one above can be applied on top of any picture to make it a one point perspective drawing, thus making the process a whole lot quicker than drawing by hand. However, I think learning to draw by hand is essential in order to understand the what's and why's.

I never thought I would like drawing something like this, but it was so much fun!! (even though not getting the lines exactly precisely perfectly on point is driving me craaaazy)

P.S.: Here's a quick guide to peace of mind, if one point perspective drawings make you anxious:
