These pictures are a review of the colour wheel just in time for spring rain! The colour wheel was coloured first in marker, then cut out and glued onto a larger, thicker piece of paper, Students drew the raincoat, pants and boots with a sharpie marker. They painted the clothing with tempra paint. The puddle and raindrops were the final step. Students "flung" the blue watercolour paint onto their page, then lifted it up to give the dripping effect of the raindrops. For the puddle, they painted watercolour (with lots of water!) then sprinkled a bit of salt on top to give the illusion of ripples in the water.
