Scarecrow Portrait

Here’s a marker and crayon combo that worked really well in my watercolor class today. I like the clear edges that the markers make, and the hand drawn feel that the crayon adds.
1. Start with drawing a large “U” for the face, then the hat on top, and the shoulders below. Add the details of the face and clothing.
2. Trace the drawing with a black Sharpie marker.
3. Add colorful crayon lines for the straw (press hard!). Color in small shapes with crayon.
4. Paint the scarecrow with watercolors. I used the liquid Dick Blick watercolors.
