Combination of perspective schemes in landscape
It happens that one landscape combines several perspective schemes. In the sample below in one sketch you see a combination of one-point perspective and two-point perspective schemes. But please note: the line of the horizon is only one. When took place complex case there might be number of buildings each with its own set of melting points, but all the melting points will be placed on horizon line.
One-point perspective scheme we can use only when our line of sight is directed in parallel with lines of depth. When the direction of our line of sight is different, doesn't matter how much, we use the two-point perspective scheme. In two-point perspective scheme our line of sight is directed diagonally relatively to the bases of buildings. Vertical lines in one-point perspective and the two-point perspective schemes are vertical.
In some of the complex cases, you can use a combination of one-point perspective and two-point perspective schemes. Also may be used two-point perspective scheme with number of sets of melting points for different buildings. But, I repeat it again, all the melting points will be placed on horizon line and all vertical lines will be vertical
