Evergreens in snow - student drawings & exercises, adult art class, 1/05/15

Evergreen trees in winter - student art, adult drawing class,  01/05/15. Exercise: blind contour drawing. Papercut exercises: Color one half of a piece of paper with a dark color. Fold in half. Cut out generic or schematic shapes for snow. Attach the colored papercut to the blank half of paper. Make another - change the snow shapes; make them a bit more organic. Now make  a colored drawing of one of these dark paper cuts. You color in without doing any outlining though you can create edges. Final drawing: draw a border around the paper. Hold the paper vertical. Do a continuous line drawing of a an evergreen in  snow from the reference photo. Color it in with a few colors using what you did in the exercises.
