Warm ups. First: draw lighting bolts with a heavy hand so the lines are hard and rough. 2: draw teardrops but with a light hand so they are very "See Through" 3: Draw rows of daisies.
Our class project using stuffed toys for models students will be to draw one example each of a dark mood and a light mood, the stuffed toy may be posed and given expression to reflect the mood.. The dark mood could be drawn with a heavy hand or darkened background or darker pencil etc. The light mood could be with a light hand or wispy lines or using texture, the toy may be posed and given expression to reflect the mood.
