Watercolor Landscape

One of the very first steps in learning perspective is noticing that the further things are away from you, the smaller they appear. A fun way to play with this is with a leaf-blowing landscape.
1. Draw a very simple landscape with a tree, hill, and multiple layers of bushes. Add leaves around the tree, and at least one big and several medium size ones.
2. Trace all the lines with a black Sharpie marker.
3. Add some lines of color with crayons: squiggles for grass, lines in bushes, veins in leaves, etc.
4. Paint all with watercolor paint. I used my favorite Dick Blick brand, especially their Turquoise Blue!
