Cameras and keystoning
I went back to my photo montage where I cut and pasted to make the idea for this painting. I made a photocopy of it to draw out the perspective lines and they don't come out right on the photo either, no wonder I'm having trouble. I don't think the trouble is with the paste up I made, but I think the camera makes changes, for example, when you take a picture of a NY street scene, the buildings keystone which is leaning more than it would if you were actually looking at it with your eyes, the camera makes this adjustment. See here.
I wanted to post my garden path subject here but dropped the camera and it won't work. I'll post it later.
