1. Draw the side view of a chair and mark with an X the single vanishing point. The legs are thicker than the steel chair on the previous page.

Experiment a little with the position of the vanishing point until you find what you consider to be the right place.

   

2. Draw faint guidelines from each corner/edge of the chair projecting them back to the vanishing point.

You may need more guidelines because of the square section of each leg.

Look carefully at the way the ‘lined up’ using the guidelines.

 
     

3. Add shade and colour to the chair. Look at the colouring and shading section of this section of the website.
