Instead of drawing your average vase, I tried having my watercolor class draw and paint flowers coming out of a watering can. Just a few curves and well-placed spout made the shape look really dimensional.
1. Students started by drawing the “U” shape of the can, leaving the top open. They added a spout on the left and the handle on the right. Different flower shapes were drawn above, with the leaves and stems added last.
2. All of the pencil lines were traced heavily with a crayon.
3. Students used the liquid Dick Blick watercolor paints to fill in all the areas. They learned that if they worked slowly, with no puddles, they could keep all their colors from running together.
