Fun project for older artists and part of a painting unit exploring color relationships and color families.
Students began by cutting an irregular wavy line across a long sheet of paper. This they used as a mask to block off the lower portion of their landscape. Tape in place.
Begin in the sky area by placing a dot anywhere on the page. Begin adding rings of warm colors around the dot. Paint right up onto the paper mask to create a crisp line.
Using cool colors begin with a line at the horizon and add repeating lines to fill in the bottom portion of your work.
