Have you ever seen the sun and clouds with smiling faces? Perhaps you have in cartoons. Many centuries ago, people did not understand the science behind the rain, sun, and the beautiful rainbows that sometimes appeared in the sky.

Today, we know that the sun is the star our planet revolves around, and that rain constantly evaporates, forms clouds, and falls as part of the water cycle.

Rainbows,

This easy, step-by-step cartoon rainbow drawing tutorial will help you master the cute rainbow and clouds outline in no time.
