Homework Help: art

Posted by K on Monday, July 30, 2007 at 3:54pm.

why do artist use parallel lines that do intersect??

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here is a definition of parallel:
extending in the same direction, everywhere equidistant, and not meeting

Just what art are you referring to?

Parallel lines do not intersect. That's why they are parallel.

What LOOKS like intersecting parallel lines is really the artist portraying a scene with perspective -- the receding lines to the horizon.
