Steps

  • Step 1
    Copying as a way of learning art has been practiced throughout history. Study works by famous artists, then print a color copy of a famous painting on a sheet of 8-1/2 x 11" paper. Tape a sheet of 8-12 x 11" Clear Lay film on top of the image.
  • Step 2
    Using an ultra fine sharpie marker, trace the important elements of the painting. Your tracing doesn't have to be exact, it can be your own interpretation of the painting. Photocopy the finished tracing onto white paper.
  • Step 3
    Color your tracing with crayons, markers, colored pencils or oil pastels - or any medium you wish. Explore the original artist's style, use of color and brush strokes.
