Peter Max style perspective landscapes



Fourth graders learn the technique of drawing in one point perspective to create the illusion of space. We looked at examples of Peter Max's works that used bright colors, sunbeams coming from a central point (the sun), and a "space" type theme. Shading with ebony pencils and painting with liquid watercolor brings these to life! Thanks to Art.Paper.Scissors.Glue! blog for the great idea - I've taught perspective drawing for many years but never with Peter Max.
