Re: Perspective

Ro, I like the way you explained that with the perspective lines drawn in. I use that method whenever I have trouble determining the correct perspective, or when I am trying to illustrate it. Nice explanation.

I quickly did a hand colour on this, just for fun. Instead of using colour for the blend mode, I used overlay.

Re: Perspective

Thank you, all of you!! Allison and Albatross - thanks for your illustrations and explanations. I've learned some new things and that's good!

The snapshot was taken in the backyard of my great grandmother's house in Memphis, Tennessee which isn't known for it's mountainous terrain That fence is a real piece of work and I hope it was put up by the neighbor to the left. While cleaning up the tape marks I spent a lot of time looking at it. There are no support posts. The whole creation is nailed to what look like railroad ties plonked on the ground. Underneath the railroad ties are huge gaps and a strategically placed shim. Norm Abrams would be appalled.

I just scanned the one I'm adding. This time the wall on the left is leaning away and the house to the back appears to be falling on it's face. I'd love to know how GGM did it!
