O'Keefe Watercolor

This one was very simple. I just looked at a flower and drew a few sketchy lines with a black oil pastel and then painted with watercolors. I'd like to figure out how to keep a sharper edge for drawing the lines thinner. It's hard to keep a sharp point on such thick crayons! But I like the look of the white border that comes from taping it off with masking tape.

Here's the original idea at Deep Space Sparkle.


  1. Thanks for this. I tried it with a 5th grade group today.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Erin. I haven't done anything here for a while, so it's encouraging to know that these can be helpful to someone! I hope your 5th graders enjoyed it.
