What age do children first start drawing basic perspective? Such as a path getting narrower as it gets further into the distance?

we were taught to do that at about age 10 but have seen children naturally do it younger

My 7 yr old did it last week, I was surprised as I remember learning it in secondary school

Thanks for your replies.

I wasn't sure when they were expected to be able to do it and was a bit surprised as my dc started doing it the other day. My dc is 6.5 so i thought it seemed early. I couldn't remember when i did it though and as my oldest child I've nothing to compare to.
