Perspective Practices, Continued
Drawing curves and circles in two-point perspective is similar to drawing in
one-point perspective except for the additional vanishing point.
shows the circle in two-point perspective.

Sometimes you need to divide a line or area into a number of parts. The key
to most division of space problems in perspective is the vertical or horizontal
area into parts
line parallel to the picture plane.
To divide a receding plane into equal areas, use this table:
Divide the left vertical (AO) into equal parts with a ruler or scale.
From these points, draw lines to the vanishing point (figure 5-21,
Draw a diagonal from point A to point (figure 5-21, view B).
Where the diagonal and receding lines intersect, draw vertical lines.
This divides the receding plane into equal units.
