Here's the painting from the demo for the fifth grade class today.
They had great questions like,
"Do you paint what you feel, or what you see?"
So, in this demo, I managed to do precisely what I told them not to do for composition! HA! I've since improved upon it, but my goodness, I had these little tomatoes lined up just like bowling pins. They were polite and didn't point it out. . . phew!
Have I mentioned the colors they made?! They were fantastic! I saw the most amazing muted pink, a fantastic purple, beautiful grays and OH the greens, because, of course, I brought my favorite mid-century modern GREEN linen napkins.
We used the primaries and white for paint and paper plates for palettes - and someone even cut cardstock down to squares for me - thanks to whoever did that, by the way.
So, this painting is what it is - I am just glad I didn't TOTALLY flub up in front of my audience of twenty-six!
