    Vay's perspective questions

    Why is the measuring point the same length as the line from the vanishing point to the station point (the line we curve up)? Why can't we just recede the scales on the ground line to the vanishing point instead of the measuring point, and then establish the unit squares in perspective?

    In Andrew Loomis's book, Successful Drawing, he did not curve up to find his measuring point, instead he placed them without it. He only said to place them evenly along the horizon.
