DESCRIPTION OF LESSONS
In our first lesson we will be painting a sweet seal using watercolor paint. Throughout this lesson students will learn a variety of technique. We will begin by focusing on the shapes in the reference photo, and use those shapes to draw in our animal. Next we will learn wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, and dry-on-dry techniques. Using a variety of watercolor techniques will help us to build up beautiful layers and values to create depth and interest in our work. Remember that you have the freedom to be creative in your work!
In our second lesson, I will introduce you to Procreate! If this is your first time using Procreate, that is okay! I walk you step-by-step through the process, and you can watch every move that I make as I create this super cute fox! We will begin by preparing your digital canvas! Next, we will draw the portrait of the fox and begin using layers. Students will explore creating a custom palette and how to add base colors. We will create depth and interest through the build up of values, textures, and layers. Lastly, students will add fine details stamping background elements. This lesson will be a great experience and an excellent way to become familiar with Procreate!
In our final lesson, we will paint this fun, bold, colorful llama! Who doesn't love a llama!! We will begin this lesson by preparing our wood panel! Next I will share how to easily sketch the portrait llama onto the wood surface. We will create a custom palette using acrylic paints, and begin by adding a base color. Next we will move into building up values, texture and layers to create depth and interest. Lastly, add in those final details using the boldest colors to show off your beautiful, bold, and happy llama artwork!
