Isn't it funny how we always do the outline first, and then the colour? Well, here's a different way of doing your picture - by doing the colour first.

You will need:
  • coloured paper
  • scissors
  • PVA glue
  • black crayon
Draw the outline parts of your picture onto coloured paper.

Here, Neil is drawing an orange skirt and an orange top.
On some blue paper, Neil is drawing a blue waistband, a sash and some cuffs.
Cut the shapes out, and put them all together.
Arrange all the parts of your picture together to form your picture. When you're happy with the result, glue all the pieces down.
But there's something missing - the outline! Take a crayon and make bold straight angular lines like the ones in this picture, to create energy and movement. These do not have to be neat, because they all add to the effect.

Try it yourself!
