Introduction to Day 7
Today, under Warm up, we quickly revise all that we did in the Workouts in Session 1, and upto Day 6.
Under Workouts, we learn how to draw parallel inclined lines at 60-30 degrees correctly.
Under Sense of Perspective Space, we draw geometric objects in 2-point perspective, using a 30-60 degree floor grid, with atleast one of the objects touching the picture plane.
• Download and Print:
1. D6-7_Geometric-Objects-in-Perspective-Space-1_Exercise (Optional, if preserved from yesterday, D6)
• Newsprint sheets
• Tracing sheets
• Soft pencils
• Measuring ruler/scale
• Long ruler/T-square and set squares
Overall Time Plan:
• Warm up : 15 mins.
• Workout : 60 mins.
• Sense of Perspective Space : 90 mins.
15 minute Exercise:
0-5 mins : Practice very fast hand and body movements while drawing Horizontal, Vertical and Inclined Lines
5-15 mins : Repeat the various workouts covered in Session-1, and upto inclined lines @ 30-60 degrees of the previous day WITHOUT the underlay grids, using SIGNATURE GRIP.
While drawing these, remember to:
1. Draw them for various lengths.
2. Draw them in either direction
3. Draw them at various pace - fast, slow, fast to slow in a single line, etc.
This practice of initially drawing the lines fast and then slowing down will help your body get into smoother drawing action for the workouts and perspective exercises ahead.

Parallel Inclined Lines @ 60 degrees - from bottom Left to top Right
Draw Parallel Inclined Lines of 60 degree inclination from bottom Left to top Right of various lengths, taking reference of the inclined lines on the grid template. Try to control the end points of the line such that they fall in 30 degree alignment (Use template T9).
Grid Template-9: 60-30 deg. 5x15 with blue diagonals @ 50mm and red diagonals @ 150mm
Parallel Inclined Lines @ 60 degrees - from top Right to bottom Left
Now, reverse your direction of drawing the line, i.e. start from top Right and end at bottom Left (Use Template T9).
Parallel Inclined Lines @ 30 degrees - from bottom Right to top Left
Using the same grid (Template T9), draw Parallel Inclined Lines of 30 degree inclination from bottom Right to top Left of various lengths, now taking reference of the inclined lines running perpendicular to the parallel inclined lines @ 60 degree inclination.
Next, as earlier, reverse your direction of drawing the line, i.e. start from top Left and end at bottom Right, using the same template (Template T9)
Note: Observe that the forearm is at 30 degrees to the line. Practice this.
Once you are confident, try the following:
Draw 15 lines, with equidistant spacing within each 5 cm of the 60-30 degree grid. Lines to be of 15, 30, 45 and 60 cm lengths as done earlier.
Change of Pace within Parallel Inclined Lines
Repeat all the exercises you practiced till now on the 30-60 grid (Template T10) by changing the pace as follows:
1) Change Pace : Fast, Slow
2) Change Pace within the Line: Fast to Slow, Slow to Fast.
Parallel Inclined Lines @ 60-30 degrees Starting and Ending Away from Grid
Also practice drawing Inclined Lines @ 60-30 degrees by Starting and Ending away from Grid, as we did on the previous day, for today's session's exercises.
Note: Remember to use Signature Grip for all the exercises.
Now, draw 45 lines, with equidistant spacing within each 15cm 60-30 degree grid (Template T10) of 15, 30, 45 and 60 cm lengths as we did before for the parallel horizontal and vertical lines.
Grid Template-10: 60-30 deg. 15x15 with blue and red diagonals @ 150mm
Sense of Perspective Space
Objective: Drawing Geometric Objects in Space - (Composition 1) - using a 30-60 degree Floor Grid
Refer the Plan and 2 Side Elevations of multiple objects in space we used in the previous Day Session [Download...D6-7_Geometric-Objects-in-Perspective-Space-1_Exercise]. Using a 30-60 degree Floor Grid this time, draw the 3D view of this composition from the point marked 'Your Point of View' on TRACING PAPER [Download...D7_30-60-deg-Floor-Grid]. See PRINTING INSTRUCTION first.
30-60 Degree Floor Grid
Finish by reviewing your composition by superimposing it over a correctly printed solution sheet provided, as you did in the previous Day Session. [Download...D7_Geometric-Objects-in-Perspective-Space-1-at-30-60-deg_Solution]

Day 8 Preview
Tomorrow, under Warm up, we quickly revise all that we did in the Workouts in Session 1 and 2, upto Day 7.
For Workout test, we do a line quality self-assessment through composition sheets, using parallel inclined lines.
Under Sense of Perspective Space, we test how you sketch geometric objects in 2-point perspective, when none of the objects touch the picture plane! You do a self-assessment of the same, using comparison sheets provided after the exercise.
