I found this drawing witch feet idea in some stock art Halloween illustrations.
It offers colorful seasonal fun, and some good symmetrical drawing practice too with those curvy, funky boots. It’s unique point of view also shows students how their doesn’t always need to fit on the page. You can crop things to just focus on the fun stuff, like curly black boots and a spider.
- Multimedia paper
- Liquid watercolor paint
- Students start drawing the boots in very simple steps. For instance, two centered lines for the backs of the boots, then the right and left heel, then right and left toe, and so on. I’ve found that students are better able to match shapes in this manner. After the shoes are drawn (in pencil), the legs are added above and a zig-zag hemline.
- All the lines are traced with crayons, including X’s on the boots.
- The drawing is painted in with liquid watercolors.
