Where do converging lines meet at
The horizon line in perspective drawing is a horizontal line across the picture. It is always at eye level – its placement determines where we seem to be looking from – a high place, or from close to the ground. The actual horizon might not be visible, but you need to draw a ‘virtual’ horizon to construct a picture in perspective.
In Linear Perspective drawing, orthogonals are the diagonal lines that can be drawn along receding parallel lines (or rows of objects) to the vanishing point.
A technique of mural painting executed upon freshly laid lime plaster. Water is used as the vehicle for the pigment and, with the setting of the plaster, the painting becomes an integral part of the wall. The word fresco (Italian: affresco) is derived from the Italian Adjective fresco meaning “fresh”. Fresco may thus be contrasted with secco mural painting techniques, on plasters of lime, earth, or gypsum, or applied to supplement painting in fresco. The fresco technique has been employed since antiquity and is closely associated with Italian Renaissance painting.
