Choose three of these paintings. Your assignment is to find the vanishing points for each of the paintings you chose and then describe where they are in these paintings. In order to explain where you think the VPs are, you must also describe how  you found each VP, that is, what did you use as the orthogonals, etc. Be as detailed as possible. In other words, "paint a picture" in words.
