The Vanishing Point

The Horizon Line is the place where the ground and the sky seem to meet (red line). In one-point perspective the Vanishing Point, represented as a magenta dot in this picture, is always on the Horizon Line. As things get closer to the Vanishing Point they get smaller and smaller until they appear to vanish.
