Pumpkin and Gourd Still Life Watercolor Painting.
Objectives: Students will learn what a still life is and how artists use overlapping to create the illusion of depth (3D space) in a flat 2D piece of art. Learn about the artist Paul Cezanne and how he used overlapping in his paintings to create a feeling of depth.
How to draw pumpkins & corn with the FREE PDF below!
Supplies: Oil pastels, watercolors, watercolor paper or tagboard/card stock
- Draw composition in pencil first.
- Use a yellow oil pastel to outline all the lines. Only do the outside lines on the corn. Use black to draw the table line.
- Use yellow, orange, black & white oil pastels to fill in some of the kernels on the corn (about 6-0 of each color).
- Paint with watercolors. I showed them how to paint 3D looking pumpkins with yellow first then orange around the lines & let the colors bleed together.
