In this case we must make an approximation to it, would indeed prove the ability be guided solely by the rules of angular perspective.

The same practice must posed to be standing on an imaginary line which goes off directly be observed for the retiring end of the building : the arm must on our right hand and on our left, and therefore neither be extended in a parallel direction to it, the point fixed upon, advances nor retreats in its direction. Having thus placed and the building measured on the pencil as before, and the ourselves, we must look directly before us; consequently, the distance repeated till it reaches the object the arm pointed at. way we are looking, which we will call the direction of sight, | (See Fig. 4, where it is repeated once and a half, first at d and will form right angles with this imaginary line upon which we the half at f, the object pointed at.) If we place ourselves are supposed to stand. Now this imaginary line indicates our further away from the building, its measured length would be position, and if we were engaged in tracing a landscape from repeated oftener to reach the vp. For an explanation of this nature upon a piece of glass (which would be the picture plane), see the remarks upon Fig. 39, “ Lessons in Drawing," Vol. I., that glass or picture would necessarily be placed parallel to this page 137. Another method, or substitute for holding out the arm imaginary line that marks our position : therefore whatever line to find the vp, is to place the pencil or a long ruler between in nature is found to be perpendicular to the picture plane the eye and upon or coinciding with the retiring lines. Those would be perpendicular to the line of position also; and similarly, lines which are above the eye or HL will incline downwards, any line of the object which formed an angle with the one, those below the eye will incline upwards, all meeting at the would in like manner form an angle with the other. To most same vanishing point. (See "Lessons in Drawing," No. III., of our pupils this will no doubt be sufficiently clear, but as we Vol. I., page 72, explanation of the vp.)
