To add to what Scoobyclub said, Uncomfortable has recently published a video in collaboration with Proko that talks about this issue and how he worked around it.

I don't think aphantasia is what I'm talking about exactly -- I have a vivid visual imagination.

...Until I try to draw. The image I dream up in my head only disappears when I put pencil to paper, whereas I believe aphantasia is never being able to imagine the images to begin with.

His video is interesting, though.

Did you know how to draw what you saw in your mind or you weren't familiar with those subjects?

You could try to write down notes of the scene or block it immediately on paper with big, simple shapes as placeholders. Maybe this would help your brain to go back and forth between drawing and visualizing.

I suspect the same approach will benefit you regardless of the exact nature of your current issues.

All good points. I take it this is not the norm then.

Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Despite their age, Marshall Vandruff's videos on Linear Perspective are some of the best lectures on all the ins and outs of perspective, and as an instructor, he is highly respected across the board. He goes into a lot of the intricacies that I don't touch on in much depth (at least, not if I can help it).

On top of being some of the best, his lectures are also among the most accessible, at the full 8 hour set for $12.00. There's literally no reason not to grab them.
