Doodle Bug Painting

Doodle+Bugs-822x1024This may have started as a simple doodle drawing, but I challenged students to add some depth to their art by making the bugs different sizes. The little ladybug, though, was purely this artist’s clever addition. Love it, Lily!

1. I was inspired by some stock art found at Students used the idea of different antennae, wing and tail size to make various bugs, some even upside down.

2. The pencil drawing was traced with a black Sharpie. Crayons were used to add lines and patterns inside the bugs.

3. My kids used liquid watercolor paint to finish the painting.

    Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written much better! Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept talking about this. I am going to send this post to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
