Once they outlined their birds and trees, they filled the space with flowers and then colored it in so the only white o their papers would be the birds and trees. Now for the new technique; we used linseed oil to transform the oil pastels into paint! Much like watercolor pencils, except it's oil instead of water! This was actually the first kind of painting that I enjoyed as a kid!
Next week, they'll finish their background areas and color their birds and trees a bit but only using whites and greys to keep the silhouette feel to the piece- I'm pretty sure these are going to be amazing!
