Perspective is in every subject so you need to master this basic drawing technique.

It's your job to break the object down in any way possible to discover where the main perspective lines are before you begin the drawing.

In this video tutorial I will pretend the paintbrush is a building that has a rectangular shape. Once I have the rectangle in place, and in perspective, I can begin the process of locating big shapes. This approach makes it much easier to render a drawing that captures the object and its perspective more accurately.

A bad approach would be to ignore this way seeing and simply start drawing the brush and it's many details. Without guidelines drawing an object even as simple as this brush can become a difficult task. The key is to always simplify.
