Ink and Colored Pencil Still Life

Students drew from direct observation to create this lesson.  They chose an interesting position and sketched the still life in pencil first.  Then students chose certain sections to add color too and lightly traced circles (they could use two different sizes)  to contain the area, being aware of keeping balance in their compositions.  Before adding color students completed value scales in order to understand how to create value using tone, shade, and tint to prismacolors.  Students then used sharpies to draw the contour lines of their still life drawings. 

Here is the inspiration from this project
