Watercolor Witch Hats

I don’t know how many times I have to relearn that the simplest ideas are often the best. Apparently once more, because I first thought that this was going to be too easy (i.e. boring) for my afterschool watercolor class. Now it’s one of my favorite projects.
1. Draw a large upside down V for the hat, with a fold at the top. Connect the ends with a curve. Add another curve for the band, and an oval for the rim. Buckle is optional.
2. Trace the hat with a Sharpie marker.
3. Add colorful designs with a crayon, both on the hat and in the background.
4. Paint all the areas as desired. I used Dick Blick Liquid Watercolor paints as I love the bold colors.
Thanks to Ryan, (just a kinder!) who is letting me share his beautiful witch hat.
