Architectual Study for the Backround of the Adoration of the Magi

This is a sketch by Leonardo da Vinci called  Architectural Study for the Background of the Adoration of  the Magi (1481).  This is an example of the perspective gird being applied to a sketch.  I chose this sketch because its a sketch that uses a specific perspective,   I struggle with any kind of perspective when drawing. I think it is interesting that da Vinci used disappearing figures as well as a vanishing point.
