Linear Perspective in Art - My Unfinished Painting Study

My updated but unfinished study of a streetcar.
This is my unfinished study of the streetcar. I have done more painting since my last post. I have been working on the sky and background. I wrote prior posts about linear perspective. This technique creates an illusion of a 3 dimensional image on a 2 dimensional support. This streetcar is in 2 point linear perspective. There are 2 vanishing points on the horizon line (eye level). A problem with linear perspective is that it leads the viewer to the background; it competes with the foreground. Artists can address this problem by using 1 point perspective. Although I have used 2 point perspective, the front of the streetcar is almost parallel to the viewer. The colourful unfinished foreground is also interesting the viewer’s eyes.
