Student examples of Paint Method
Mrs. Do's 4th grade Summer 2016
----------
Begin by drawing lily pads scattered around paper with a pencil.
When they look how you like, use a BLACK permanent marker to outline them

4th grade light pencil sketch


Draw Koi fish swimming around the pond with a pencil. 
This is the steps I found most helpful... from Art Projects For Kids website.
http://artprojectsforkids.org/portfolio/koi-fish/
WHen they look how you like, outline them with a BLUE crayon or Blue permanent marker.
Color LilyPads with a green crayon using VERY HARD pressure.
I blended 3 greens together. 
Draw ripples around lily pads with white and blue crayon using VERY HARD pressure. 
(you will see white later). 
Draw bubbles with a white crayon behind the koi fish's tail using HARD pressure.
COlor the Koi fish with crayons using hard pressure with crayons again. 
Anything you want white you will have to color white. 
Use watercolor or tempera cakes to paint in water. THe crayon you used before very HARD will resist the paint if you use enough water.
