Conveying the perspective reductions in human height on a flat surface and platforms of different levels on the flat picture plane of a painting can be carried out by determine the height of the artist’s eye level. The purpose of the study: to develop a set of theoretical and practical materials that allow art students and practicing artists to determine the perspective height of people depicted on the picture plane, which in turn will help to convey the magnitude of any physical objects in perspective in general. It was concluded that one of the main methods for establishing the perspective height of people and other objects depicted on a picture is the method of determining the height of the artist’s eye level. Results: based on the analysis of diagrams-drawings demonstrating options for calculating the perspective height of the artist’s eye level, depending on his position in respect to the object depicted in the picture, a method for determining the height of people and the sizes of other objects depicted in the picture plane is substantiated. Scientific novelty: the article is the first to introduce a set of theoretical principles, practical recommendations and a set of visual aids for using the method of determining the height of the artist’s eye level to establish the perspective dimensions of people and other physical objects depicted on the picture plane. Practical relevance: in this paper, we consider the particularities of using this method in the teaching of drawing, and offer specific tasks for organizing students’ independent work.
