When we are drawing any subject from nature, we are sup- lines upon that side of the building. 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

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 s, 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 oj 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 anglo 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.) Suppose we are about wish to make it evident to all, if possible, we ask them to turn to draw the church (Fig. 5). As we are obliged to sit near to to Figs. 5 and 6, Lesson II. in Geometrical Perspective, Vol. II., it, we are compelled to make the point.of sight at a in order page 225, which will illustrate our remarks. It will be seen how to bring the whole subject within the angle of vision, 60°, the picture plane is situated with regard to the eye, E. It is and consequently make it a case of angular perspective. If we parallel with our position when we stand before it and look 'could have sat further away from it, we might have made it a directly towards it, and when a line from the eye E to the surface case of parallel perspective, and have fixed the point of sight of the picture will form right angles with the picture plane, at the vp of the end of the building. Under the present cir. as the line E PS with HL. Well, then, admitting this to be cumstances, if we hold out the arm parallel to the end of the the case, we can understand that if a line in the object is so building, we shall be pointing to the tree as the VP; this placed that each end is equidistant from the picture plane' would be the vanishing point also for the parallel retiring lines (that is, parallel with it), we have nothing more to do than of the porch. The ridge of the roof and all lines parallel with draw it across the paper; it has no vanishing point; but it would retire in the other direction, but being at a very small when the line has one end nearer to the eye than the other, angle with the picture plane or with our position, they would it then retires and is at an angle both with our position and meet the horizontal line at some distance out of the picture, so the picture plane: all lines similar to this must have their vanish. that it would be impossible to place the vanishing point within ing points.

It is a very difficult task to give a written explanation of all lines from nature.
