Exercise: Boxes and Cubes
Draw 9 boxes and cubes.
Specifications
Subject matter: Boxes

Exercise 4: On one sheet of paper and following the steps used on the Cubes and Boxes webpages, draw a combination of nine boxes and cubes in 1 point perspective (above, on and below the eye level—right, left, and mid way in the line of sight). Do not erase the light lines that you begin with. Darken the "front plane" lines. See attached example. Because there are no measuring points, you will estimate the foreshortened pitches of the planes.
