The Power of the Palette, Expressive Landscapes

Giving each student a styrofoam plate to use as a palette was invaluable.  Being able to use only red, yellow and blue to mix hundreds of combinatins is such an experience.  They also had black and white to make tints, tones and shades. The first week they each completed a color wheel.  Using that knowledge, the following week they planned their landscapes. 



I wanted it to look like it was in the cold mountains in Ireland.  The houses are cottages in a small village.  Everyone is asleep because it's midnight.
