Drawing the Inside of a Room in Perspective:
When drawing an interior scene, the actual horizon may not be visible. However, we use and "eye-level" line in place of the horizon line. This example uses only one perspective point on the eye level line.
Notice that the sides of all objects recede to the vanishing point (VP). You can see through the door that the actual horizon line is consistent with the interior eye-level line.
All objects in this example are positioned so that they are parallel with the picture plane. However, if an object were placed at an angle within this scene, all of its lines would not be parallel to the picture plane, would not use the one vanishing point. Those objects would be drawn in two-point perspective.
My tutorials and free lessons are being plagiarized by numerous websites both foriegn and domestic. They are copying my images and text and presenting them as their own original lessons. I am trying to curb this by placing subtle watermarks in each image. I hope they do not distract you. ALL tutorials on my website, including this one, are for the express use of visitors to the website of William F. Powell and may not be copied, pasted, or posted on any other website or used or reproduced in any other manner without the express written permission of William F. Powell
