Eloise’s Art Project
Art with Eloise
1
This is a finished example of our lesson today with Eloise!
2
Materials: pencil, paper, sharpie, branch, a visual of an animal & thin coloring tools.
3
You can begin by tracing an actual branch...
4
Or sit in front of a branch and draw what you see...
5
Eloise has drawn the basic shape AND the small natural details in her branch!
6
Eloise has found a reference for her owl drawing. This can be a book, drawing or directly from life!
7
Her branch & owl have broken the page up into interesting shapes!
8
Now she is going over her drawing with a black sharpie. This makes her next steps pop!
9
The owl is drawn with a lighter line than the branch...the branch then feels heavier than the owl.
10
Now to pick a color “palette” —a set of colors used in patterns throughout the drawing.
11
Eloise is emphasizing the curves with a curved pinkie fingernail-sized pattern!
12
Can you see what the blue shape patterns are emphasizing?
13
In the color flow!
14
This was Eloise’s five color palette.
15
Beautiful! One more thing—the bird needs to become part of the color design.
16
Eloise has created a magical feeling with her color and detail!
17
The finished piece! What would you title this?
18
Consider using Eloise’s style in drawing YOUR favorite animal!

Thanks Eloise!
