Exercise 47. Two-Point Perspective

On the next blank page, draw a vertical line representing the nearest corner of a cube that we’ll be creating. Center this line within the frame. Add a horizon line behind it, as you did before in Exercise 46. Now draw angled lines from the top of the vertical line to points along the horizon on both sides of the corner line. These are also known as vanishing points. Draw similar dissecting lines from the bottom of the vertical line to the same two vanishing points. Add vertical side lines to the right and left of the vertical line to suggest the depth of the cube on both its sides. Shade one of these sides to imply depth. You have now created a three-dimensional shape, in perspective, using two-point perspective. (Take no more than 2 minutes to complete this drawing.)
