Henri Rousseau was a French artist that lived in the late 1800s. He tried to paint in the schooled manner of the traditional artists, but the innocence and charm of his work eventually won admiration of many avant-garde artists.
1. Students trace a 6" circle in the center of a 9" x 12" sheet of paper.
3. Draw a simple tiger face, starting with two eyes, two lines going down the center, a upside down triangle nose and two circles drawn to the sides. Whiskers are added, then ears, body and tail. Lastly, triangles may be drawn all around the edges for a tiger look.
4. Daw lots of leaves, some that are in the back of the tiger and some are in front. This will make the tiger look like he is hiding in the leaves.
5. Trace all the lines with a black marker and then color everything in with oil pastels.
