multi part project
(on Winslow homer):
Homer learned to be a good artist by copying the work of other artists. Select one image you want to try and copy. Send me a picture of your drawing. You do not have to color it. Next, I am going to do a watercolor painting with you.
This is a step by step wilderness watercolor inspired by Winslow Homer. You will need heavy white drawing paper or watercolor paper (9 x 12) if you have it / Watercolor set with a lid to mix colors / jar of clean water / paintbrush, pencil /and black felt pen.
After you know how to create some watercolor paintings, this is a great collage technique where you combine watercolor painting with tearing paper strips and making a folded paper sailboat. Together they look like a Homer painting on a rough sea.
GEORGIA O' KEEFE:
Georgia O'Keefe is the most famous female artist in American.
She lived to be 98 years old and loved going outside to draw and paint things from nature. In 1920, that's 100 years ago, she started painting super large images of flowers, these are her most famous paintings.
1. Go outside and look at a flower really really close. Look through a magnifying glass and draw that one flower as big as your paper. Color it with bright colors just like Georgia O'Keefe and send me a photo of it!.
2. Go outside and find something unusual and interesting to draw. Don't forget to draw it very large and color it with very bright colors. Send me a photo!
