Apples are a great place to start for watercolor painting.
This little video is taken from one of my classes.
Fall is the perfect time to have an apple tasting and paint an apple.
Just posted a new video.
Draw your own bear puzzle.
You can pick up blank puzzles at any craft store.
Let's doodle bunnies! This bunny uses a lot of circles.
Put circles and lines together to create a bunny.
Drawing is simple when you know how to put shapes together.
Use dots lines, and squiggles to add details.
Crayons, markers, or colored pencils are a good way to add color to your drawing.
Start with a big circle but leave room for the ears.
The nose can be a circle or a triangle.
The eyes are circles too.
Add lines for the eyebrows and mouth.
Use rectangles for the teeth.
The bowtie has triangles in it.
Add your own details to give the bunny some personality.
Make a quick drawing to get warmed up and then draw it again!
Drawing a house that has height, width, and depth makes it look 3D.
Here is a simple way to introduce perspective drawing.
This house is drawn with a square and a triangle...add a few more straight lines and a 3D house appears.
Use this exercise to understand the concept of perspective.
All you need is a marker, paper, and crayons to draw and color.
Don't forget to allow mistakes and creativity.
Doodling is thinking on paper.
If you make a mistake turn it into something else.
Use lots of colors.
Add all kinds of details!
Have you ever seen a polka dotted house?
Doodling is the perfect time to test those creative ideas.
Have fun and doodle on!
Can you tell a story with your doodles?
This is the fun part... What details can you add so the person looking at your art will know more about the mouse?
What is the mouse doing? Where does the mouse live?
You can create any story you want.
Give the mouse personality by choosing a hat, glasses, or even shoes to tell more about the mouse.
Use simple shapes to draw all the details. Circle, squares, triangles, dots, lines, and squiggles come in handy.
This mouse just got home.
Can you tell where he lives from the picture?
... Somewhere with flowered wallpaper!
I can't wait to see what you create!
Hint: Use fat markers to color in the background.
Use thin markers to add the small details.
I say it over and over .... Draw with the basic shapes and you can draw anything. A mouse is a simple way to start drawing. Use small, medium, and large circles to draw a mouse.Squish the circles to make ovals. Those work too. Add dots, lines, and squiggles to embellish the mouse.
