|Start with the drawing, add a DARK value for the sky and a light (watered down) value for the ground.|
|Shading, cast shadows and local color take the most time. Stars are lifted after the DARK sky is very dry.|
Many of my students come in the week before a HOLIDAY and ask for a project that fits their needs...I am teaching them to work ahead and have fun doing it!!
FIRST, we brainstormed about trick or treaters that have knocked on our doors in the past.... ghosts, princesses, angels, devils, monsters , ballerinas, cowboys and cow girls.....and talked about what makes each one different....likes wings and shoes and crowns.
Most thought they wanted to do ghosts...thinking they would be the easiest. I had several sketches for them to look at, encouraging them to push themselves a bit.
I am pleased with all the results and look forward to seeing more ideas when they return.
