 Above is a simple landscape showing Ayers Rock.  As I’ve never been to Australia, it was inspired by the scene behind the opening credits in the Walt Disney movie, ‘The Rescuers Down Under.’  For years I used this scene as an introduction to landscape drawing to children in my art classes.  It was quite a crowd pleaser.  Executed step-by-step as a group, the simple design allowed each student to create a successful rendering of Uluru, the sacred rock.

This is an enhanced coloured pencil version of the drawing I taught my classes, with added colour and textures.
