Yep, another idea that originated from stock Halloween illustrations. I think it offers some colorful seasonal fun, and some good symmetrical drawing practice too with those curvy, funky boots.
1. I plan to have students start drawing the boots in very simple steps. For instance, two centered lines for the backs of the boots, then the right and left heel, then right and left toe, and so on. I’ve found that students are better able to match shapes in this manner. After the shoes are drawn (in pencil), the legs are added above and a zig-zag hemline.
2. All lines are traced with crayons, including X’s on the boots.
3. The shapes are painted in with liquid watercolors. I’ve grown partial to the Dick Blick Student watercolors, and the Turquoise Blue and Violet in particular.
