Year 3s have worked beautifully to create their close up flowers. We learned that up close objects have more detail than objects that are further away (part of our perspective unit). So proud of this lesson.
Students learned about sketching and drawing what they saw. Students spent half of a lesson sketching their flowers and other half practicing different wet on wet techniques using tube watercolour paints. The next lesson students mixed their paint and painted their flowers using the wet on wet technique. For the final lesson students added in some texture and colour using the wet on dry technique and used soft pastel for the background. Students also outlined their flower using black glue.
