"Blind Contour with Color Wheel"
Be Creative! Design the entire page.
- Using your black felt-tip (not roller-balls) do
two blind contours of your teachers. Use two pages; draw
one on each page.
- Using colored pencils, turn the most interesting of the
two blind contours into a color wheel. The colors must flow in the order
of the color wheel.
Perhaps use a floating rectangle behind as a way to unify.
The color can go on top or behind the contour figure.
Blend the color very carefully and smoothly.
You'll have to "make" some of the colors by carefully layering
two colors on your page.
Maybe use some of the techniques you learned in some of your other sketchbook
