After drawing some structures in the woods in a sketchbook, I was still struggling with using the three point perspective to get the shapes I wanted. So I decided to do some more practices digitally – where I could extend the drawing off the edges of the photograph, and figure out the method more.


This method of digital drawing is less fun and interesting that drawing en plein air! And I think the results are not as good. You need to be under the canopy to get a sense of the height and surroundings. However this was worthwhile doing to get more familiar with this three point perspective, and this method definitely creates more believable and new structures than drawing freehand like I used to do.
