Add details to the buildings (more windows and doors, balconies, columns, signs, lights, etc.
Use empty areas to add more buildings or structures. Be creative.

In two-point perspective all lines are:
vertical
or
receding (go to one of the vanishing points)

Use the worksheet (11"x17") to complete the construction of the buildings.

Assignment printable:

simple roof

Build the building from the ground up.

Once you have a block built - time to add the roof. This is a simple triangle-shaped roof.

Printable handout:

Draw two diagonals to find the center of the front side.
Draw a vertical line up to define the height of the roof.

Draw the front triangle.

Draw a receding line to the back side of the building.

Draw a receding line to define the top of the roof.
Done.

windows & doors

Add windows and doors to the both sides of the building.

Printable handout:

On the closest corner:
mark the height of the door;
mark the dimensions of the windows row
Draw receding lines to the vanishing point from these marks.
Vertical lines, drawn between the receding lines will define the windows and the door.
For an arched doorway:
define the top points of the straight part of the doorway by drawing a receding line to the vanishing point.
Mark the highest point of the arch on the center line.
Draw a curve

tower

Tower roof and windows construction.

Mark the height of the window on the front corner of the tower.
Connect the marks with the vanishing points.
Add vertical lines between the receding lines to define the windows.
