margin and title box on a new page then:
Construct the simple corner of a room using a CVP.
This 'oblique' line will represent one runner of the ladder. Call it 'ab'
'cd' is parallel to 'ab'. Construct as shown with lines to VP.
Add the ladder 'rungs' and firm them in.
Establish the light source - drop to floor and construct shadow lines as demonstrated above.
This diagram shows the method of constructing a shadow cast by one of the 'rungs.'
Shade in the shadow 'freehand' as shown.
Complete the shadow and add other appropiate details
