Look no further to get some fall drawing ideas. This step by step tutorial will show you how to make this pretty composition.
Students can make a simple fall drawing project that adds a little bit of math to their art lesson.
This project starts by making a grid that can be ESTIMATED to break the page into thirds. The first vertical line starts about two thirds of the way across, and the two horizontal ones about a third down and up. It just so happens that the fall shapes will fit nicely into the boxes created, and is guaranteed to have a nice BALANCE (Principle of Design) when complete.
Young students might do best by just concentrating on drawing the shapes, but those looking for more of a challenge could try to add some shading too. That pumpkin is just begging to have some yellow highlights with orange shadows.
