We then took our primary colors and practiced letting the colors mix together on wet watercolor paper. With real leaves that I collected from the garden, we stamped with our primary colors on the leaves to the paper. I then showed them how to bring the leaves to life.
The next classes we will work in complementary colors, so I have done a series of paintings to demonstrate each pairing. Each painting in done in just the two complementary colors.
The first one is orange and blue.
The second is red and green.
The last is yellow and purple.
On my next class I will bring in some pumpkins and we will start with with orange and blue.
