|Batten down the hatches and draw a tornado that's just ripped through a farmer's field.|
You will need:
|Draw this shape - which looks like a path through fields.|
|Add in the grass with some horizontal shading of a green crayon - and then go over it slightly with black.|
|Add in the grass along the side of the path, which has been blown sideways by the tornado.|
|Now for some fences, or rather some broken fences, where the tornado has ripped through.|
Add in black shading underneath the fence too.
A telegraph pole also adds to the effect. You can use the back edge of crayons to create really thin lines.
|Now for the tornado. This is the basic shape, so itís easy to draw.|
|Add in some shading along the edges.|
|Now for some swirling clouds, going around the top of the twister - just curving around the top.|
Get your wax crayon going to create those swirls!
Chalk or pastels are also good for this.
|Add trees and houses in the distance, and shade in the rest of the sky, and there you have it - a tornado scene!|
Try it yourself!
