Home » Glossary » Foreshortening

Foreshortening is a technique used in art to create the illusion of depth and perspective in a two-dimensional image. The technique involves depicting an object or body part as if it is closer to the viewer than it actually is, by shortening its length and altering its proportions. Foreshortening is often used in figurative art to create a sense of movement and dynamism, and can be used to create a range of emotional and narrative effects in a work of art.
