art lessons - shading with color

Teaching private art lessons is still going great!  In the previous art lessons we focused on shading 3D objects with a normal pencil, and then shading them with a single color using colored pencils.  

This lesson had us incorporating a bit more depth using two colored pencils to shade one object.  I have to say...this was fun for me.  It was so simple and almost therapeutic.

To increase the challenge for my 10 year old pupil I also gathered some objects that had more complexity than simple cylinders, spheres, and cones.  Here's the chosen few.


We started by drawing a simple outline of each object.  Then, using a darker and lighter shade of one color, we used our simple shading techniques to fill it in.  The drawings below are the teacher's example (aka, mine!). 



This absolutely made me want to draw some serious still lifes!  What do you think....a good lesson?
