With it at some point, and at such point they must as necessarily meet, or form a vanishing point for all other lines that may, in nature, be parallel with them. Thus, as will be seen in the last example, the lines that before sought the point of sight as their vanishing point on the line of the horizon, do so no longer, but they must still concentrate, as before, at some point on the line of the horizon and harmonize together. While those that were before parallel to the line of the horizon,...

PERSPECTIVE ITS PRINCIPLES, RULES, AND PRACTICAL APPLICATION. ERSPECTIVE is an art which develops the principles, and fixes, by established and certain rules, the practical methods of representation of that diminution of objects to the eye, in proportion as they are more or less remote from the observer, which is so evident to all an art, without which the draughtsman must for ever wander in uncertainty and error, while in its knowledge he secures a faithful and unerring guide. To all, whose...

Examples, to draw them with a clear, unbroken line, without taking the pen from the paper until it is done. Be not discouraged, at repeated failures, but try again and again, until you succeed. You doubtless begin to find that you require more than the command of your fingers in drawing your wrist, and the whole arm, must be brought under proper government. And here, as a valuable assistant, the blackboard can not be too strongly recommended. 23. Drawing on the blackboard might be made a...

In the application of this method of sketching by masses, tinted paper will be generally found to be most serviceable. On such, not only the pen, crayon, and black-lead pencil, may be employed, but a further advantage may be gained, not only in the way of expedition of execution, but also in effectiveness, by the additional use of white, either chalk or liquid white called Chinese, or constant white , which will low from the pen, or may be touched, or washed on, with a camel's-hair pencil....

If the interest of the student has been excited- and his attention bestowed upon what has been already said, and so earnestly urged upon him, and he has mastered the examples of the head, hand, and foot, already given, he will experience but little difficulty in drawing any form or figure that he may attempt. When it is said that he possesses the capacity to draw a figure, it should not be understood, thereby, that he is capable of that careful elaboration, or minute...

The square has heen selected in our first lesson on the geometrical application of the an, as a form not only most intelligible, but at the same time valuable in consequence of the unerring verification of its diagonal with the point of distance, and for other considerations which will be made evident to the student as he progresses. Above we have the GEOMETRICAL or GROUND PLAN of a square in connexion with its perspective representation or Perspective Plan in the picture, viewed under the...

Racy of the eye and judgment, as well as decision of hand, attain the desired end. If the operation holds good in one case it will in another, and we have but to transfer such points to other required positions, under precisely the same circumstances that we would if we desired merely to place the square itself in perspective. In the example m, the operation is more simple, from the parallel position of the circle in reference to the base line here we have but to decide upon the central points,...

However incomplete a work on perspective may appear, without its rules in reference to shadows, the artist-student, whose eye now looks on nature alive to the just perception of the influences of the art, who can counterfeit the reality in conformity with its laws, can scarcely need a recipe for its shadows falling, as they do, in masses, more or less defined, of position and form, modified and influenced in their shapes by the recipient object on which they are thrown, and those by whose...

By the aid of shadows is developed the true form of the model and to parts more or less advanced or depressed, are thereby given a location, as decided and certain as if seen in profile. So truly can they be expressed, on a flat surface, that a sculptor can model a bust, from a picture, and the eye may be so completely deceived, by their close representation, as scarcely to distinguish the reality from its counterfeit. It is, therefore, as essentially...
