Miro Watercolor Painting

Joan Miro was a Spanish artist who developed a very whimsical style back in the 1930s. His painting called “People and Dog in Sun” is  fun to imitate by drawing stick figures, stars and circles.
1. Draw one large stick figure in the middle of a sheet of watercolor paper, preferably in some action pose. Miro often repeated shapes in his work so add more shapes to your art but ONLY by using lines and dots. At least two of the shapes need to intersect (overlap) to make more closed shapes to color.
2. Trace the pencil drawing heavily with a black crayon.
3. I tried a new paint for this project - Dr. Ph Martin’s Inks. They are similar to watercolors but have a really intense pigment. They do stain clothes so I wouldn’t recommend them for young kids. Whatever you use, fill in all the shapes with a different color.
