How to apply perspective
One Point Perspective(Single Point - One Vanishing Point)
Two Point Perspective
Three Point Perspective(Bird’s Eye, Worm’s Eye - Three Vanishing Points)
|All receding edges of the buildings in this one point perspective photo angle towards the single vanishing point. The position of the vanishing point tells us that the photographer was crouching down, with his eye level lowered.|
It is possible to draw over photographs to identify vanishing points, horizon lines and true shapes. Studying the work of famous artists can also help you gain an understanding of one point perspective, as shown in the example by Vincent van Gogh below.

Exercice : A chair
The purpose of the exercice is to draw a chair (made of rectangle parallelepipoid in 3D)
First draw an horizontal line with two vanishing point, just like below;
Like for a square or a cube, draw a front edge of the chair. In this exemple, start from one of the chair leg front edge and then draw lines starting from the two vanish points :
From vanishing points, draw crossing lines (the thickness is up to you) and link intersection points:
Now, draw the paralells lines linking the intersection points (see below), the first chair leg is drawn.
Draw the other legs just like it ahs been done above, in the process the seat of the chair thickness can be drawn too.
The seat of the chair can then be drawn as usual by extending the lines from the vanishing point until the intersection point.
Here is the chair with four legs and seat.
It's nearly the en, the cahir back need the be drawn.
Erase fondation lines to get a more clear and clean output.
The chair legs are too long, this can easily be fixed as you can see below
With the perspective fundamentals in mind you can easily size the chair as you wish.
