     Before emerging in perspective, let's make acquaintance with furniture's main orthogonal views! The structural grid of the chair might be traced back to rectangular bodies. ("How many cubes might be written in and around the chair in question?") The framing cube-envelope should be extended to a certain limit only. Let's content ourselves with a simplified structural grid!
Proposed sequence of drawing:
      A - Getting acquainted with the object, orthogonal sketches (principal view and a characteristic section)
      B - Primary and secondary framing shapes
      C - Negative shapes, dissection to planes, proportion
      D - Structural construction, basic square on the floor, vertical scale, internal and external cubic grid
      E - Details of front plane, material thickness
      F - Cut-in-lines of environment, background relations
      G - Control of convergences
      H - Tones, shadows and lights, contrasts, finishing stage
     The perspective picture might be started with the framing shape - the basic square on the floor marked by chair's legs seems to be a solid opening. While adding tones, we should relate each mosaic to its neighbor.
