We also checked out several works of art by Jim Dine.
(original post) and decided to change some things. We really always keep growing as teachers. I decided this time to have the students add a shadow to the trees using the color that would be the next shade darker. The students used oil pastels and pressed very hard with color #1 and then on just one side and branches with the next shade darker- color #2. On day 2 we studied the color wheel and chose contrasting analogous colors for the watercolor background. I added salt at the end and came out with a nice wintry scene. We also looked at several paintings by Wolf Kahn- HERE.
