PRINTABLE PROJECT NOTES
Start by outlining the lamp post lightly in the center of the page or to make it interesting off to the side. The lamp post is just two lines going up and down. The top of the lamp post has the lamp and it is shaped like a diamond.
Add windows and frames for the windows. Add some details like a ball on the top and a little cuff between the lamppost and the lamp. Remember to make it look round by using a shadow that goes from light to dark.
The bricks start out as three curved lines that go all the way around for the planter. Divide the lines by drawing up and down lines to make individual bricks. Use an alternating pattern for interest. Draw a line for the top of the bricks but do it lightly so you can have some flowers and leaves going over them. Draw grass to cover the bottom. Add a few chips and dots for roughness.
For a background, I put in a wall with the same brick pattern but I used bigger shapes. Make these lighter and use less detail. Behind the wall, I have a row of trees. I made these with even less detail by just using a few scribble lines, and shadows.
