Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
2:48 AM, Saturday September 4th 2021
I just finished my rough perspective homework, and had a great deal of trouble drawing straight lines perpendicular to the horizon. They were almost always skewed quite a bit off towards another angle. Even the preliminary dots I draw never end up where I think they're going to be.
The weird thing is that I didn't have the same problem connecting my rectangles towards the vanishing point. Those lines are much more likely to go where I want them to. I rotate my page to always draw my lines with the same motion, so I don't think it's any sort of unfamiliar motion causing it.
I did most of my work on a flat surface, but recently tried using a block of wood underneath to draw at more like a 15 degree angle. Could putting my paper at a more extreme angle help?
