Discover what's in the deep, dark depths of the ocean with this Art Attack!
You will need:
To create an underwater city, you'll need a dark blue wax crayon.
Just think "Ancient Roman Ruins"!
|Start by drawing some tall columns, like the ones you see in pictures of ancient Rome or Greece.|
|They usually sit on a base...|
|...draw another on the other side of the picture...|
...then think of other long lost ruins.
How about a statue, on a plinth?
|Add in some other ruins in the background...|
|...and other bits and pieces that have fallen down over the years.|
|Now draw in a few fish!|
|And don't forget seaweed and rocks.|
|Finally, take a white wax crayon, and draw dashes, white streaks and dots for bubbles, across the picture.|
|Finish off by mixing some light blue watercolour paint with water, and brush it across the picture...|
|The white wax crayon shows through, and the rest of the wax resists the water colour.|
|While the paint is still wet, take a tissue and streak downwards, to represent shafts of sunlight coming from the surface, down through the water.|
Finally, brush in some darker colour into some of the underwater shapes.
You don't need to be perfect with this.
And there's a mysterious Underwater City.
Try it yourself!
