Watercolor for Elephants


I tried out this elephant just today and loved the results! Some students went for realism with a muddy landscape background, and others had fun with fancy accessories. Either way, it’s another example of my favorite combination of black Sharpie marker + crayon + liquid watercolor paints. And yes, a step-by-step tutorial is coming soon...

I did a very similar elephant project! My kids loved it! You can see mine here:

Hi Ashley,
That is pretty amazing that they are so similar. I was inspired by a piece of clip art – maybe we looked at the same thing? At any rate, love your stuff too!

I can't wait for the step-by-step tutorial! This is so beautiful and will fit perfectly in with my nonfiction inquiry projects! Thanks for always inspiring my inner art teacher... it was never really there until I met your blog!
