I did the above painting to study the effects of the night sky close to the horizon line (eye level) and the building in 2 point linear perspective. The scene was done around 5 a.m. and the sky was a red black hue (color) close to the horizon line. This also allowed me to use the complementary hue, green in the painting. The sides or planes of the building converge to the left and right vanishing points on the horizon line in linear perspective. Linear perspective is a method used to paint 3 dimensional forms on a 2 dimensional support. The edges diminish and converge as parallel lines to the vanishing points on the horizon line. In my painting, the horizon line is at the top level of the windows. I used a muted green to paint the building. The building was lighter on the left side because of the number of overhead light fixtures. I went back to the area during the day so I could view the building’s linear perspective as I stood at the same location. You can also see the form and cast shadows on the building, poles and ground created by the outside light fixtures.
