A peculiar creative silence overtook us. A big wave could have taken us out. Later, I noticed her wading into the surf. She was glowing. I squeezed out more Aureolin hue (yellowish paint).

|1st Grade Watercolor Seascapes|
These lovely seascapes were painted with liquid watercolors which the students loved using! I love using them because the colors are so brilliant and a little goes a long way. There is a book I wanted to share with the kids called Water by Frank Asch The artwork looks like it's all been done with watercolors and this provided the inspiration for these pieces.
I have a huge rug for the kids to sit on while we look at artwork or while I demonstrate a particular process. This is when I demonstrated how to draw a seascape along with a boat and water. Afterwards, the kids went to their tables and started their own.
