Students practiced drawing their flower BIG, "falling off the page, BIG". Then they were introduced to mixing tints of a single color. They were asked to show at least three values of their color. They used watercolor to paint their complementary to their flower color. Oil pastel was used to create an added border or frame.
* Sorry about the flower that looks a little off - centered at the top. *
Students created a simple contour line drawing of a vase and fruit. Then they used a ruler to create non-parallel lines both vertical and horizontal. In each space created, they used a color pencil to create a 3-hue value scale of light, medium, and dark. It's key that the dark values our opposite of each other in the shapes. Students decided on whether they wanted to use warm or color colors for the objects or background to create contrast.
