1. ## Stuck

Hi. I've been slowly working through Andrew Loomis "successful drawing" in earnest trying to learn the basics of perspective. I was creating a room and have suddenly hit a brick wall.

I want to mirror the right-side of this chest-high wall, to the left side, with the exact same proportions, but I'm not really sure how to do it. Help would be appreciated.

3. Follow the same principles you’ve used for the other walls facing the left side, and use the top corner of the existing fence as your starting point. If everything is in proper perspective it should be the same height.

4. Thanks for the help, but I'm still confused unfortunately. Not just the height itself I need, I want to mirror the measurements of the posts spaced.
e.g.

5. Loomis is great source for drawing, in particular drawing the human figure, but his treatment of perspective is flawed. For your fence, you will need measure points, or the vanishing point for the diagonals, for which you need a little more theory. In this case, you may as well eyeball it.

Again many thanks. And yes, opening with a perfect cube, without explaining how to do it, with a perfect sphere in the first "welcome to perspective" chapter wasn't the greatest move in the world by Loomis. Thankfully a few youtube vids helped out with that.

I deleted the posts completely and tried applying measuring points from a prev chapter. I'm not sure, but will this be perfectly spaced now? Ty.

7. Works for me!
