For the 2 awnings the vanishing points (VP) must meet high in the air and not open as you have it at the moment.  In other words the main awning on the left has a VP to the right and the smaller awning on the right has a VP on the left (both in the air)

Correct Dennis.   

I have corrected my original drawing, but I thought the error I made was a good lesson to review the topic.  Somehow it is easier to make the error with a VP above or below the horizon, then it is with VP on the horizon.

Perhaps I should also post the lines to show how the lines will converge to the VP way way above the horizon line, to illustrate your explanation.
