Wouldn't these lovely poinsettias make great Christmas cards?
These are soft pastel paintings completed on red construction paper.
We examined a few faux poinsettias before starting our artwork, and we used a resource photo to refer to as we worked.
We drew our poinsettia using the tutorial found at Masterpiece Art Instruction.
Then we used blending stumps and fingertips to soften our pastels and black charcoal pencils to further define details and lay in the shadows.
I think they are beautiful!
Our poinsettia artists ranged in age from 9 to adult.
