Where the wild things are


This week, I planned to continue the skills that we have learned from last week. I added zigzag lines, triangle shapes and etc.
The steps are
1) Read the book "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak
http://www.amazon.com/Where-Wild-Things-Maurice-Sendak/dp/0060254920,


2) Then we started to create our "Wild thing" with crayon.
3) We made it more interesting by adding a tree, leaves, things the animal eats, like drink and apple.
4) Then we use watercolor to paint it.
5) We also add salt on the paper for extra texture.

P.S. *The technique is Watercolor Crayon Resist. The crayon is oil based and watercolor is water based. When we combine 2 medium, they won't blend. We can paint over the crayon lines, but we will be able see the crayon lines at the end.
I personally love to see students' raw drawing line because of its originality.
