Washable Marker Elephant

For this one you draw the elephant and then trace it in black washable marker. The wrinkles, eye, and toes are done with thin permanent marker so they won't bleed. Then you use a a wet paintbrush to draw the color out from the washable marker to make gray (and blue). When it dries you cut out the elephant. The background is a separate sheet done with watercolor and salt and then grass and trees added with chalk pastels. I love the process of making washable marker bleed with water!

Here's the original idea at Fun Art 4 Kids.
