Your backgrounds/interiors/exteriors really get my juices flowing, Paul.

Everytime I set to doing a piece of architecture or an interior I find myself constantly running to a book (or to a Loomis PDF) to try and problem solve.
As a self taught artist, not being able to grasp a concept over time is very frustrating!

But everytime I think I have the basics down I have a "well. . .I have no idea how to figure out that angle" moment. :)
I'm trying very hard to do it the right way - not "eyeball" it constantly or use fishing line on the light table kind of fixes.
I know those would only become very dangerous crutches.
I get the feeling that there's something very simple I'm missing - but it's just not clicking.

In time.

Thanks dik and Vanoni.

V, hard to know what to say because I'm not sure what you mean when you say "it's just not clicking"---do you mean you're having a lot of toruble with perspective?

Sorry! I wasn't trying to glean advice from you - only rambling toward two points: Your background work makes me smile - seemingly basic perspective continues to elude me.

For sake of discussion though - may I can offer up this latest sketch
It was roughed out while eyeballing a corner of my home, with the intention of sitting down afterward and shoring up the perspective properly.
I made quite a mess of it, trying to lay in some guidelines. One side seemed off - then the other. On a seperate sheet of paper I layed in a complete grid, and only confused myself more. :) Using my guidelines, the desk in the corner never really looked right.
By the time I tried negotiating the angled arms of the chair (which aren't really angled in the sketch) I was convinced something was terribly wrong with my approach.
