Perspective Practices, Continued
areas into parts
When drawing vertical divisions in perspective, use this table and refer to
Construct the first two points with the desired space in between
them (A and B).
Locate a vanishing point (VP) and draw lines C and D from the
original two objects. No part of the objects should extend above or
below the receding lines.
Mark the center of the first post and draw a line (E to VP).
From the top of the first post, draw a diagonal line through the
center of the second post. The third post will be located where the
diagonal line intersects the line representing the receding group line
(D to VP).
Repeat this procedure locating any number of members desired,
drawing one at a time.
