Watercolor Cow Face

Watercolor-Cow-700A 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.

1. Students draw their cow face in pencil.
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 use watercolor trays to mix up black, pink, and whatever color they wanted for the background.
