- 12" x 18" white drawing paper
- Black, pink, white, green and yellow oil pastel or crayons
- Red (watered-down), green and blue liquid watercolors
- Brushes and Water
Step One: Begin with a 12" x 18" white drawing paper and a black oil pastel and draw a small circle towards the LHS of the paper. Then, draw a large curve, starting at the right of the circle (head) and going all the way around until you reach the bottom of the circle (chin).
Step Two: Draw two straight lines for legs complete with inverted letter "V" for hoofs. Draw a small circle with two short vertical lines inside for a snout, two dots for eyes and two ears. Lastly, draw a curly tail.
Step Three: Using a white oil pastel, color in white clouds and a fence line. Using a green oil pastel, add grass. Yellow oil pastel for a sun, etc. Continue until the child has enough detail in his picture. You can suggest butterflies, flowers, etc.
Step Four: Set out a tray of blue, green and pink (watered down red) liquid watercolor paints and large wash brushes. This step takes very little time.
Set out to dry and Viola! Pretty Pigs!
