My Wednesday class is two hours long this year! Yay! This REALLY helps with being able to complete more complex art pieces. Even though it’s two class periods, it actually works out to be as if it were 2.5 to 3 class periods, because we eliminate the need to clean up and set-up time, as well as the “get focused” time. It really adds up!
One of our first projects was a dragon eye. It was adapted from a black and white sketch I found on the internet. I think these turned out so cool!
First, they sketched out the eye. Then, using watercolor pencils, they emphasized each scale, and pulled in the color. They used watercolors to add shading and more color. They also splattered the skin to add texture, and for the pupils they used black Sharpies.
