Drawing bikes with my students:
I brought one of my boy's bikes into our studio space.
After looking for and drawing the details on the bicycle, we took things a step further by choosing a shape and/or line found in the bike to create a unique pattern for the background.
When it came time to choose colors, each student selected a color harmony - complementary (opposites in the color wheel), analogous (neighbors on the color wheel) and neutrals are shown here. Light and dark values give the pattern a bit of contrast.
