We’re going to challenge ourselves at the end of our color series! Miss Linda demonstrates colored pencil drawings of a hornworm and a sunflower, using the integration of all the color theory and drawing techniques we’ve learned in previous lessons.

The example photos, as well as Miss Linda’s completed drawings, are available below and at the Supplemental Materials page. Please keep in mind that this project requires dedication, so take your time! It took Miss Linda many hours to complete her works, but it was definitely worth it.

Special thanks to Nicole from the AsWeWatchItGrow Instagram account for the incredible and inspirational hornworm photo.
