Prepare a piece of paper with heavy watercolor washes and drips Next, create a portrait on top of the paper using chalk pastel Last, add an interesting background to add interest (in this case, the dead trees)
Create an acrylic painting on wood panel (you must supply the panel) The subject should be some kind of everyday object (shoes, an interesting hat, a wrench, etc……) This should be highly realistic and life sized
Create a pastel drawing of a musical instrument in an interesting angle Collage sheet music to create an interesting background *** you could also do a drawing of any other subject and college the background with a other materials (ex newspaper, magazine, etc.) ***
Create a series of related drawings in pencil Then, collage your drawings on watercolor paper and add watercolor washes and drips
Create a watercolor painting of a place starting with watercolor pencils Use only expressive colors to show the mood, or feeling, of the place
Create a watercolor painting of an interesting article of clothing Use watercolor washes and drips to create a unique background Last, layer text or other images (such as clothing company logos) on top of your finished painting using charcoal, pencil or sharpie marker
Using watercolor pencils, make a painting of reflective objects. Use interesting washes for the background. Define important areas with chalk pastel or white & black charcoal pencils
Create a portrait in watercolor Your portrait should be a close-up and show an interesting expression Don’t shade at all!!!! Each value will blocked out individually (like a coloring book)…use this image to help you!!! Use exaggerated color to create mood
First, create a layer of tissue paper on watercolor paper Draw a flower from different angles, overlapping your drawings Fill in each flower with watercolor…let the overlapped areas create blended colors Last, define the interesting areas with chalk pastel or black & white charcoal pencils
Create a watercolor wash on a piece of watercolor paper Draw a functional object sitting on a surface (table, bench, box, etc.) using pencil & shade with watercolor Use chalk pastel to define the object
Create a watercolor painting of flowers (do not use sunflowers!) Using sharpie marker, outline the edges that separate every value Add texture in the background using sharpie marker
On one piece of paper, draw 5 portraits from life using only contour line. Do not lift your pencil off the paper at all! Later, make watercolor washes and drips to add interest and define the best sections of the drawing
Create a portrait or self-portrait in pastel using only sepia tones (brown, red, tan, yellow) Show the person from an interesting angle (looking up, looking down, etc.) Make sure your subject fills the ENTIRE PAGE
Create a portrait or self-portrait in CHARCOAL YOUR PORTRAIT MUST BE FROM A BIRDS-EYE-VIEW (SHOWN LOOKING UP, FROM ABOVE) YOUR PORTRAIT SHOULD FILL THE ENTIRE PAGE
