A Sense of Distance

Learning perspective is challenging. I have habits that are hard to break even when following step by step some of the wonderful demonstrations on-line. Perspective is counter intuitive and I fall into my habitual patterns.

There is a viewing platform at Ridgway Reservoir that I noticed would be perfect for a one point perspective drawing. The platform has lots of vertical and horizontal lines, is set above the water and offers a distant view of green hills across the lake. Through drawing this scene I gained a better sense of how angles work together. Figuring out how to represent the bench was especially helpful.  Tomorrow before we go to our next campground I hope to quickly sketch this platform again.
