Colored Pencil Apple Drawing

Colored Pencil Apple DrawingDid you know that good colored pencils can actually blend together like oil pastels do? I didn’t until I purchased some new supplies.
1. Demonstrate a simple line drawing of an apple sitting on a table and ask your students to draw their own, in pencil.
2. Show students how to "glaze" a drawing by coloring the different layers needed for this apple. Fill the apple shape first with white colored pencil, then a layer of yellow (leave a highlight spot) then orange, and finally red.
3. Add detail such as the stem and background.
This apple was drawn by a second grader.
