For remembrance day we created these fields of poppies. Students began by painting red "blobs" on blue construction paper. The blobs got larger as they went down towards the bottom of their page. Once they were dry, students used green pastel to colop in the grassy field. Students were told that if they want to get the illusion of perspective they should have darker grass at the bottom of their page and lighter grass towards the top.
