Let's talk about the weather!
A Comparison of Two Skin Tone Colored Pencil Sets By Jean Van’t Hul, The Artful Parent

One in a Melon

For this fun summer card I used the Faber-Castell Mixed Media tin and some watercolor paper.

To start I used the red and green watercolor pencils to sketch out the shape of a slice of watermelon.


Then, using the provided brush, add water to blend the color!

Next I used the brush tip pen to create the seeds. If you use the side of the brush pen and push down it creates a seed shape! (I used the same technique to make rain drop in this post)


Last, add in your details- I outlined the watermelon and added the words "One in a Melon."

Erin is a teacher by day and a creator by night. She loves to try and inspire creativity in her students everyday! Because she’s busy during the day, the night is when her creativity gets to explode into the world through lettering and messing around with watercolors. Her biggest advice would be to not compare your art to other people’s art! Be uniquely you!
