  1. The object is partially covered and is meant to be seen as located behind those covering them.

Overlapping

2

Succesively smaller elements are percieved as being progressively farther away than the largest ones.

Diminution

3

Stacks elements with the higer ones intended to be perceived as deeper in space.

Vertical Perspective

4

Objects in the far distance (often in bluish gray hues) have less clarity than nearer objects. The sky becomes paler as it approaches the horizon.

Atmospheric Perpective

5

Also known as reverse perspective, forms widen slightly and imaginary lines called orthogonals diverge as they recede in space.

Divergent Perspective

6

Also known as scientific, mathematical, one-point and Renaissance perspective is a rationalization or standardizatio of intuitive perspective that was developed in 15th century Italy. It used mathematical formulas to construct images in which all elements are shaped by , or arranged along, orthogonals that converge in one or more vanishing points on a horizon line.

Linear Perspective
