2 point perspective pictures
Two point perspective is the next step after you master one point perspective. This perspective happens when you are looking at an edge of an object. When this happens, the object appears to be connected to two vanishing points on the horizon line that are wide spread. Two point perspectivce actually looks more real to life than one point because people see things from an edge (called an oblique angle) more often than head on (as in one point perspective).
You can use an infinite number of vanishing points. This works really well if the furniture in your room is not all lined up with the walls.
In two-point perspective most lines are either vertical or orthongonals. There are rarely horizontal lines in two-point perspective!
Two Perspective drawing is one of the skills that requires both technical and artistic understanding. It's technically demanding because there are rules that must be followed and if broken will ruin your drawing. Perspective drawing is artistically demanding because you must use your art-sense to use the rules in a creative way to come up with interesting and unusual solutions to your creative challenges.
