After practicing at least five contour line drawings of different parts of the bike, students chose two different views of the bike to make into their final watercolor. To further abstract the work, students are adding imaginary colors to both the positive shapes of the bike, and to the negative spaces behind and around the bike shapes. Students are also using different brush techniques to add the color.
These are turning out spectacular...I just LOVE the bright colors! Be sure to look for them in the hallway in April for the School-wide Art Show!
