Watercolor Cow Face

Watercolor Cow diagramA piece of stock art inspired this simple watercolor cow with bold, colorful outlining. The trick is to trace the drawing of the cow many times with crayon so the color will really stand out when complete.

PREP: Very light grid lines were drawn in pencil, dividing the watercolor paper into 8 sections as shown.

1. Students drew their cow face in pencil as shown in the diagram.
2. They chose one crayon to trace all the pencil lines. When finished, they traced the lines again so they would be very bold and colorful.
3. Students used Crayola watercolor trays to mix up black, pink, and whatever color they wanted for the background. Remember, sometimes less is more, so lots of details are really not necessary for this project.

    In a large heavy pot, gently heat olive oil, onions, sea salt and a little freshly ground pepper (and the chili pepper, if using) and saute over low heat until the onions are soft, about 10 minutes. Add carrots and saute another 5 minutes. Add the San Marzano tomatoes and their liquid and break up the tomatoes with a wooden spoon (or just crush them with your hands, like I do). Add the herbs and sugar, if you are using it. Simmer gently, uncovered, for about 20 to 30 minutes, until the sauce thickened Has.
