transparent, after which draw the line mnfrom one peak to the other, to form the ridge of thehouse, and the drawing will be finished. LESSON IV. To draw a Circle in Persjjective. First draw the square ABCD, making its diameterequal to the diameter of the circle you propose drawing;next draw the diagonal lines A D and 13 C, which willintersect each other exactly in the centre of the square,and then placing one leg of a pairof compasses in the centre, extendthe other till it touch the side of thesquare, and with this distance in-scribe your circle; next draw thelines a b, c d through the points f–], 3, £, 7, whea the circle intersects the diagonal lines, X o PERSPECTIVE. and then the lines % 6, 4, 8, through the places wherethe circle touches the sides of the square. In order to put this circle in perspective draw the baseline A B, the horizontal line C D, and let D be the centreof the picture and C the point of distance; then, fromthe point A in the base line lay off the distance A E

equal to C D in the foregoing figure, and divide it in thesame manner into the points J, % 3, which being done,draw the vanishing lines A D, ] D, 2 D, 3 D, E.D;next lay off from E the distance E B equal to AE, anddraw the lines E C, B C, and then from the points G,where E C intersects the line A D, to the point H, whereB C intersects the line E D, draw the line G H, whenthe square in the foregoing figure, with its divisions, willbe drawn in perspective, with the exception of the dia-gonal line, which remains to be made from A to H, andthe horizontal line a b, which passes through the centre ofthe square, when the diagonal lines intersect each other.All that is now required is to draw the circle, whichmust be done with the hand, observing what points ofthe square in the foregoing figure it passes through, and DHBi ^B H PERSPECTIVE. making it pass through the same points in the perspectivedelineation of the same square in figure 5. LESSON V. To draw the Arches of a Bridge in Perspective
