Perspective - a crucial element of the art of painting

Paintings by Dr Abe V Rotor

Composite perspective shows collective grouping,
process, stages, and other forms of interrelationship.

Dichotomy and phylogeny perspectives are typical in
the living world and 
evolutionary patterns.


Lighting adds zest and freshness, tells time of the
day and good weather.


Concentric view has a spherical or tunnel effect such
as the setting sun, yolk of an egg, bonfire and the like.

V-perspective shows distance, infinity, fullness
and details of a scenery.

Vertical perspective shows height; it is heightened
by "foreshortening effects" - a technique found in
El Greco paintings.


Diagonal perspective gives a feeling of ascending

movement and flow; it also shows movement in
the opposite direction, nonetheless equally active
and forceful.
