I reread what I wrote before and it seems that in my haste I made some
mistakes. There are 4 rules. #3 should read.....All diagonal lines should
go back to the vanishing point. #4 should read....You can put in the
horizontal lines or vertical lines where you wish, but all diagonal lines
must go back to the vanishing point or points on the horizon line. Sorry
fellow teachers...You must think I'm an idiot.
