Look no further to get some fall drawing ideas. This step by step tutorial will show you how to make this pretty composition.
Simple fall projects can teach valuable lessons, and make pretty seasonal art at the same time. It’s always nice when your projects can do double duty.
This project starts with making a grid that can be ESTIMATED (math) 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.
