How To Draw a Duck

I received a gift set of Dr. Ph. Martin’s inks and decided to show my students how to use them as a wash by adding water.
1. Using pencil on 11" x 7.5" watercolor paper, the students drew the large petal shape for the body and a circle above it for the head.
2. Curved lines were added to draw the neck.
3. The lines at each end of the neck were erased to complete the connection. Then feet, feathers and facial features were added.
4. Simple background shapes were added to create the landscape with flora. When the drawings were complete, all lines were traced with a black ink pen. Then, using small paint palettes and thin brushes, the students added water to thin the full-strength blue, brown and green Dr. Ph. Martin’s Inks and completed the picture. Of course, watercolors are an option.
