Desert Landscape

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Desert LandscapeThe very first step towards learning perspective is noticing that objects get smaller the further they move away. I enjoyed using this desert landscape theme to have students create lots of visual space in their drawing.1. A bumpy horizon line is drawn near the bottom of the paper. Three cactus are added; one large, one medium and one small, anywhere they like. Butte mountains, with their flat tops, are added in the background. Sun and clouds may be drawn as well.2. All the pencil lines are traced with a black marker.3. The drawing is colored in with pencil crayons.Thanks to Matthew G., a first grader, who let me share his really great drawing.
