I teach linear perspective in my Intermediate drawing class. I also teach several exercises on tone. In these exercises, you draw shades, which eventually gift the focal object (you do not use lines). For linear perspective drawing, lines are used primarily. This type is structured and full of rules while tonal exercises are flowing.

For me, life is art and art is life. And, if you can find a middle ground somewhere between this flowing perspective and the linear, you'll arrive at the perfect place. This is a sacred place where anything is possible. It is a beautiful space. If you would like to discover it, open your creative self up, it holds the key.
