Warm and Cool Abstract Landscape

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.
