I was inspired by a stock art drawing, and made just three rules for this lesson: the horizon line had to be curved, close shapes were to be large, and those beyond small. The result was a kind of fisheye lens panorama.
1. As noted above, students started by drawing the curved horizon line. They could choose close items to draw, they just had to be extra large. Any shapes on the horizon were drawn rather small.
2. When the drawing was done, all the shapes were traced with a black permanent marker.
3. The drawing was colored in with oil pastels. This drawing was completed with the Portfolio® brand.
