4. Vanishing Points
When looking at railroad tracks, it seems the tracks meet in the distance. This imaginary point is called a vanishing point. The alignment of lines toward one or multiple vanishing points is an effective way to create the appearance of three dimensions while drawing architectural subjects, streets, and furniture. Vanishing lines are lines that move away from the observer and meet at one point, even though, in reality, they’re parallel to each other, such as a building‘s balconies and windows, street edges, or table edges. In addition, constant shapes and the distances between them become smaller the farther away they are.
