A Pueblo in the Desert!

A Pueblo in the Desert!

This week we drew a desert scene on sandpaper! We drew a pueblo in the desert using crayons on sandpaper to add texture to our projects. We expanded on last week’s project techniques using new mediums.

While we dug into the sand, we explored atmospheric perspective, coloring some objects harder and shading some objects softer. We discussed how coloring darker or brighter will make objects appear closer, and coloring softer or lighter will make objects appear farther in the distance.

This project included:

  • Brainstorming what the weather is like in our picture.
  • Exploring how the sandpaper texture changes our medium.
  • Collaborating how different shading techniques can create atmospheric perspective.
