Here we've finished our watercolour skies and grounds, after a little lesson about horizons and the "rule of thirds" :
Next came the india ink-blown tree:
It really was fun seeing those branches sprawl out with each breath!
I confess the thought of getting out more paint for the fall leaves had me weary, so when I found my daughter's stash of these, we improvised the project a bit:
They weren't quite as effective as "proper" paint because they didn't cover the ink -- but they were neater and easier to use. These are the final results . . .
By Yours Truly:
I kept blowing and blowing (with the hair dryer!) the ink trying to get it to dry -- only to realize that it actually was dry -- just glossy where it was a bit thick.
Pretty cute, don't you think?
Are there any favourite fall art activities that you and/or your children enjoy?
