2pt perspective grid construction and interior rendering examples


2-PT Grid method with Measuring Points, 30/60 left justified,
based on David Opheim method.


This photograph provides a very clear representation of how parallel lines converge to a singular point on the horizon line (HL). Notice how each square tile is 2-dimensionally represented as a kind of diamond shape, and they become increasingly compressed or trapezoidal toward the left and right
of the photo, and especially lower, closer to the viewer.

Horizon Line = Eye Level of Viewer
