Tuesday, I laid out some small peppers in case my students didn't have work they wanted to do. One student continued on her painting of the old rusty truck, using the "darks first" guidelines and lessons from the previous work. One student did this as she liked the colorful peppers.
First, we laid out 5 peppers, arranged them and drew them. Then I enlarged them a bit on the copier and that was traced onto an 8 x 10" piece of Arches watercolor board (cold press).
And we painted. She did more glazing. I put my colors in and drizzled and splattered = fun :)
Added some waterproof ink (Pitt pens in black) to give it a more illustrative look and pop more, and splattered more (I do love to splatter!).
My student will finish her version this Tuesday and the other student will continue with her truck once she decides on the color she wants. Her dark and varied background is done - and done well (although she is not happy with it).
HAPPY LEAP DAY!
