Do you want to learn more about perspective in your acrylic paintings? Discover the illusion of depth with Roger Jackson.

What is Perspective? Answer: It is the illusion of depth on a flat surface or putting a 3 dimensional picture on a 2 dimensional surface. Sounds simple but getting the perspective right is a struggle for many artists when doing cityscapes, landscapes and seascapes. I will explain the two different categories of perspective – linear and aerial – and demonstrate how to use some basic guidelines that you can use on your paintings.

Space is limited and registration is required.

Originally from the UK and raised in Stratford Ontario, had a life-long interest in drawing and painting but did not begin to paint until the early ‘90s. Roger works in oil and acrylic. He has worked in other media over the years but loves oil and acrylic, painting some of his favourite subjects - working boats, seascapes, the old buildings of Europe.

He is an Active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and participates in the AGGV TD Paint In and the Victoria Arts Council’s Artist-in-Residence program.
