  • Step 1
    Cut a 9x12" piece of Strathmore 400 Series Colored Pencil Paper down to a 9x9" square. Using a pencil and ruler, draw a 1/2" or 1" square grid on the paper. Using a circle template and a ruler, draw circles and squares in your desired pattern inside the grid.
  • Step 2
    Use warm, popping colors to fill in part of each section of the grid.
  • Step 3
    Use cool, receding colors to fill in the rest of the grid.
