Layered Apple Basket

Watercolor+applesThis basket of apples is a good project for young students that are ready to add layers to their artwork.
1. Draw the basket by starting with the top band that sits in the middle of the paper. Add the angled sides below and finish with the bottom band. Draw another band in the middle of the basket. Finish with the vertical lines.
2. Trace all the lines with a black Sharpie marker.
3. Add detail wood lines with crayon, preferably light yellow or white for contrast. Color small shapes like the leaves and stems with crayon.
4. Paint all with watercolor paint. This sample was made with the Dick Blick student brand.
