## Video: How To Draw A Room In Perspective

Very often, people who make repairs in a room or come up with an interior for it need to sketch it in perspective. For artists, builders or architects who are used to dealing with blueprints and drawings, this is no problem at all. But such work can be done by anyone. Perhaps not as perfect as a professional, but quite understandable for yourself and others. How can this be done?

## Instructions

### Step 1

Measure the length, width and height of the room you want to draw. For example, let it be 3 m high, 5 m wide and 4 m long.

### Step 2

Draw a rectangle ABCD on a piece of paper. Sections AB and SD are horizontal (room width), and segments AC and BD are vertical (room height). Divide the segments BD and CD into 3 and 5 equal parts. On a scale, they will be equal to 1 m.

### Step 3

Measure and draw the horizon line parallel to the CD segment. Usually it is located at a height of 1.6 m from the bottom line, i.e. in your case from the CD segment. Designate the points of intersection of the horizon line with the segments AC and BD as H1 and H2. Find the center on the horizon line and put point E. This is the so-called. vanishing point, the point on which your gaze focuses.

### Step 4

To get the angles of the room, draw lines from points A, B, C, and D to Vanishing Point E.

### Step 5

You have already divided the CD segment (the width of the room, which is 5 m) into 5 equal parts. Now draw lines from each division point to vanishing point E.

### Step 6

To draw the opposite wall you are looking at, you should indicate the depth of the room in your drawing (this is the length of the room 4 m). To do this, draw a line from point H1 on segment AC to segment CD, to division 4. Designate this intersection point as point K.

### Step 7

The intersection of the H1K segment with the CE segment is designated by the point C1. From this point to the right and up, draw lines until they intersect with the diagonals AE and DE. And from the obtained points, there are two more lines that are closed by the rectangle of the opposite wall.

### Step 8

So that in the future you can easily draw a window and a door, as well as interior items to your right and left, you need to properly scale them in depth. To do this, you should draw parallel horizontal lines from the intersection points of the segment H1K with the lines that you previously drew from each division of the segment CD to the vanishing point E. These horizontal lines should intersect with the segments EC and ED (corners of the room).

### Step 9

Draw a window on the wall to your right. For example, suppose it is 1 m from the edge of the room where you are standing. Draw a segment from point H2 to point K, which lies on the segment CD.

### Step 10

On the segment BD (room height), mark the point of the window height from the floor to the window sill. Draw a line from this anguish to the vanishing point E. In the place of its intersection with the Н2К segment, put a point, and then draw a vertical line from it, which will be the height of the window on the scale.

### Step 11

To correctly indicate this height on your drawing, draw a line from the vanishing point E to the segment BD at the height that you need (i.e. from the window sill to the top of the window).

### Step 12

The width of the window, i.e. its depth in perspective is determined by the lines that you previously drew parallel to the segment CD. The door and all interior items are drawn according to the same principle.
