How a Picture Plane Works

To get a general idea of how a picture plane works, grab a new piece of Plexiglas or clean off the one used for the previous exercise if it's the only one you have.

1. Hold the piece of Plexiglas evenly in front of your face.

2. Look around the room, at a corner, at a window, at a doorway to another room. Look at a table from the corner, across or down the length of it. Look out into the backyard or go look down the street or up the hill.

All that you can see on the plastic picture plane is drawable, first on the plastic, and then, when you've got the hang of it, directly on paper.

So, we will start with a few additions to your piece of plastic and set up for drawing.
