The Ellipse Card - Perspective is a tricky concept if not interpreted correctly. Ellipses are one aspect of perspective the artist needs to understand. We created a theory card explaining the concept in graphic form. Below is the front of the graphic and the reverse side features the written explanations. This is an excellent tool for the teacher to use in the classroom and for the artist to add to their study materials and tools. Reach for your ellipse card while painting. Check your still life compositions to see if the circle shape you are painting is indeed seen in correct perspective. This chart is available in student size 8"x10".
