Watercolor Sky

This project revisits the color wheel and connects to color theory as well as landscapes.
Using only yellow, orange, red, purple and blue watercolors (wet on wet) students create a sunset/sunrise sky. We did a direct painting process calling out each color together then painting an arch like stripe across the sky. Students were encouraged to keep the color edge wet and vary the width of the arches/stripes.

Part II using only black paper (great way to use up scraps) and glue sticks,  student tore the paper for the ground and then were given scissor and pencils to add other landscape type elements such as animals, trees, structures and rocks.
