I found this really great pop-art piece by artist, Walt Curlee. I loved the colors and the simplicity of the design.
It’s not always easy finding inspiration for my young artist, but this was perfect.
Then he used his water pen to blend the colors into a beautiful sunset of pink and purple….
Next, he practiced drawing the shape of the flying ducks. It’s hard to get them to look right!
After he was comfortable drawing the ducks, he took a pencil and drew the reeds, leaves, and ducks. Finally, he filled in all the shapes with a dark gray brush pen.
I think he did a great job! This is my third young artist to attend “Mom’s Art School’, and we’re having a great time experimenting and learning new techniques. Next week, we’re going to try to paint some trees with faces in them.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Fall. ~Scarlett
