painting the back of the leaves with thick tube water color paint-
thank goodness for drop cloth table covers :D
Then finishing it off with a nice background color!
And here are the tops of their Autumn poetry paintings- the focus here was on the colors of Fall.....
Two students chose water color resist with oil pastel leaf transfers-
they colored the back of the leaf, then RUBBED it onto the paper.....
then painted over with liquid water colors
And the last student chose to do more of a drawing technique- first the outline of the leaf with veins drawn in and then paint- sorry it doesn't show up very well!
So that wraps up our Fall session of classes- next, we'll be doing Halloween; one of my favorites!!!
