This is what another student did last week with my “Finish the Picture” project. She started with a fashion magazine photo, and made this very stylish image.
1. Students start by cutting out a small magazine picture, one that inspires them. A glue stick was used to attach the photo to a piece of watercolor paper.
2. The students are to “finish the picture” first with a pencil, and then color it in with watercolor pencils. (Prismacolor® pencils were used for this drawing.) Water is painted carefully over the colored areas, which turns the pencil into paint.
This picture was created by a creative 5th grader.
