*Teaching points: complimentary & analogous
color, tints, shades, and tones
Remember good composition rules:
Overlap, run off the page, very the size, repeat shapes, maybe try a "floating
rectangle" to create an interesting,
full page. You need to fill the page in an interesting way.
The coloring on this must be very
neat and carefully done. Color fairly dark so the color schemes show up
It's fall and harvest time! Go "harvest" some
leaves!! Find several different types (shapes) of leaves and trace them
into your sketchbook. These may have to be repeated several times to make
a good composition.
Now divide the page into four separate areas. Please
do this creatively also! Then using colored pencils, color each area in
one of these four color schemes:
- Complimentary colors: colors opposite each other on the
- Analogous colors: three or more colors touching each
other on the color wheel
- Tints and shades: one of the above two color schemes
with white and black added to lighten or darken.
- Tones: colors with their complement added- do scheme
1 or 2 in toned colors
