What makes interesting art?
Art is interesting because there can be so many different perspectives in a piece of art. The way I see it may be completely different than the way somebody else sees it. It's interesting to hear what somebody sees in a piece of art compared to somebody else. It could be completely different, and that's interesting to me.

Aerial perspective, or atmospheric perspective , uses modulating (gradually lightening and greying colors) to create the illusion of depth, or recession. Leonardo da Vinci described the method of in this way, “Colours become weaker in proportion to their distance from the person who is looking at them.”
Ginevra de' Benci Leonardo da Vincic. 1474 - 1478
'Paris Street, A Rainy Day' by Gustave Caillebotte is an excellent example of how to use a central eye level with two point perspective.
Wayne Thiebaud's “Beach Group III”, gives us a birds-eye-view of people at the beach. This makes for an interesting composition; its a view we don't often experience.
One point perspective is one way to emphasis and draw attention to a particular aspect of your work. In Raphael's School of Athens he used one-point perspective to compose this work. The lines on the floor tiles and the pillars converge at a single vanishing point on the horizon line. It is between Plato’s and Aristotle’s heads School of Athens is considered one of the best examples of one point perspective.
Foreshortened perspective portrays or show an object as closer than it is or as having less depth or distance, as an effect of perspective or the angle of vision. Foreshortening create dramatic and interesting images as in Andrea Mantegna's, Lamentation over the Dead Christ shown here.
