LINEAR TEXTURE WITH WATERCOLOR
7TH GRADE ART WHEEL 2014-2015
watercolor and pen & ink
These are referred to as Zentangles these days,
but for my 7th graders they are really an exercise in pattern and shape,
along with learning about color theory & watercolor washes.
One of my favorites was done by Shannon Carizon.
Love that tree silhouette balanced by her moon.
And the wash is so well done with lots of atmospheric values.
This next one by Megan Ly is so well thought out and executed.
Stunning piece sweetheart!
Malia Pulido went all out in this amazing design above.
She is such a hard worker and will spend hours on her pieces.
Her design is so pleasing to the eye.
Sydney Eng came up with a super unique design,
also spending hours on all those tiny marks.
We were all so impressed with this one by Gabriela Roxas.
Her craftsmanship was impeccable!
And Emma Yang brings her sweet & bubbly personality into this last piece.
It reminds me of an illustration you might find in a beautiful children's book.
And the quote by Yoko Ono is perfect.
These young ones just amaze me with the time and effort
they are willing to put into their assignments.
And the creativity is out of bounds!
