The Tukery Drawing

the finished turkey drawing and turkey drawing pages
Start with a turkey drawing.  The Turkey Drawing set will make this a breeze.  The best thing about these drawing pages is that every turkey will be a little different!  I did this drawing on 90# drawing paper, which works best for any water technique.
 
 

Use those File Folder Texture Plates!

Adding texture to the turkey drawing
Add a texture rubbing.  I used some chunky crayons and a file folder texture plate that I made.  
(Click on the links for more instructions.)
I think it looks best to use light colors for the texture rubbing and darker colors for the marker outlines.  
 
 
 

Add Color

Outlining the texture turkey with washable markers
Outline each shape with a washable marker (even the areas where you made the texture rubbings).  
I like repeating 3-4 main colors.  
 
 

Add Water

Add plain water over the marker lines, this will make the colors bleed into the center and will make your turkey look like it was painted with watercolors!  Make sure you get the markerlines wet!
