A quick line drawing of my shed and garage, and my neighbours’ houses. We live on a slight hill and I was looking downhill to complete this.

The lines at eye-level and above extend and converge as expected to the left vanishing point (vp). The angle of the base of the shed is significantly different to that which is dictated by the use of the vp, yet I drew what I saw. Is this foreshortening?

The lines on the other planes extend into more of a ‘vanishing cloud’. I think I’ll do this exercise again and stand further away from the buildings, on flat ground.
