Hi. I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you draw horizon lines. So, the horizon line, it is a line, it's horizontal. And it is where the earth meets the sky visually. It's arbitrary because it depends on where you're viewing it from. It changes, but it's always at eye level if you're looking at it. So, that's just a little fact to know about the horizon line. Like if you're looking at, you know it happens, on water is a good place to see it that's real level. I'm just putting some clouds to show like the sky above the horizon. Because the sky is part of the horizon concept. If you wanted to like show some perspective, going back to the horizon; let's say we're standing on a road and we're looking at the end of it. I'm drawing some straight lines and they're converging at the horizon line. And that's, let's say that's the, this is the divider line of the highway. And you know, there could be some other lines. I guess it would get smaller as it goes back. It would be a lot smaller. And then you get bigger, because that's how perspective works. And things in the foreground get bigger. But as you could see, well you could put some like, fill in the sides with some greenery maybe. Let's say there's like grass on the side of this road. And it's just going straight back in to the horizon line. And that's how I draw horizon lines.
