1. Using a pencil, lightly draw a dot in center of page with lines crossing through... Kinda like your slicing up a pizza with your pencil. Using a ruler straight through will make this easier.
Put this in your brain; the center dot is the vanishing point. It is the center point where all things are furthest from the viewers eye. So, when drawing this picture, clouds and cactus I will be largest and closest on edges of the paper and get smaller as they go to center point.
2. With light pencil, Use diverging lines to draw the sides of the cactus. Use diverging lines to draw inside lines of cactus and arms. Make clouds get smaller as they get closer to center.
4. With Crayola markers, color cactus leaving areas of paper peeking through...
