An Important Aspect of Quilts
Perspective is an important aspect of pictorial quilts whether they are a landscape or still life and geometric quilts. The use of various forms of perspective can enhance the depth of the image making it more dramatic and creates the illusion of being three dimensional.
Atmospheric perspective can be employed using greyed tones and changing values. The understanding of 1, 2, and 3 point perspective lessons will help with rendering architectural forms and buildings in your quilts or wall hangings.
It is also fun to explore geometric perspective to create the sense of dimension in patterned quilts like tumbling blocks or stars. Various versions of Tumbling Blocks can become quite complex.
