Finishing our Landscape Paintings

This week, we finished up our landscape paintings.  We introduced a few new techniques.  I did a short demonstration of layering pastels and watercolor pencil over watercolor.  Adding another medium gave our paintings more interest and depth.  The kids had a lot of fun adding to their landscape paintings.

Here they all are, finished.  I hope to hang them up at the Plain City Library soon.

Here are a couple of details of some of the students' work that I think was particularly successful.  I love the variety of colors and textures portrayed here...  

Some of them took on etherreal and abstract qualities:   

Next week, we'll work on a short one week project that will be displayed in the window of Mainstreet Treasures in downtown Plain City.
