First we sat in front of the computer and discussed the 5 varies of shading to make something appear 3 dimensional on paper. I must have picked up more in the University of Utah open draw than what I thought. All of my years of pencil drawing were paying off.
Then, we were drawing a strawberry from a black & white photo on the rough side of the water color paper. Then it was fun with masking fluid. I got to break open the new package on this one. It was a mini version of Christmas. I finally get to play with and figure out what this masking fluid was used for. Yahoo! Colleen, the teacher told us to just lightly put/ poke the paper to make some strawberry seeds on the dark side of the strawberry; about 5 seeds would do. Don't over do it; she told us.
