It’s no secret that I have a crush on carrots. I am a little over the top, carrot crazy. I created this carrot art – a guided drawing to be used in an art class this weekend at Beyond the Blackboard but am excited to share it with you too. This post is sponsored by Beyond the Blackboard as they provided me with the supplies and materials.
- Watercolor Paper
- Permanent Marker (Black)
- ooly Watercolor Paints (or crayons)
Here are the verbal directions.
- Using a pencil, draw a long and narrow letter U to make the bottom of the carrot.
- Add a top to the carrot by drawing a squiggly line to connect the tops of the letter U.
- Draw the leafy growth on the top.
- Add a couple of lines to the carrot body to give it details.
- Add two dot eyes and a smile.
- After you trace over your pencil art with a black permanent marker.
- Add circles in the background.
- Use ooly watercolor paints to add color (or crayons if desired).
This is a pretty good idea of how your masterpieces might turn out if you use ooly watercolor paints. I LOVE them so much because they create vibrant and gorgeous colors.
Here is a photo of the drawing steps.
