Water colour portrait

Water colour paint.
Portrait by an eight year old.
The children were asked to come up with guide lines for where features are positioned on a face. For example, the top of ears line up with eyes, eyes are one eye width apart, etc. Using the guidelines, they drew a portrait with black wax crayons. They used water colour paint (the primary colours only) and blended them to make the realistic colours they needed. When the work was dry, details and more blending was applied using oil pastels.
