These sunsets were a 2 day project by the Grade 4 class. The first phase was the sunset background. Students started with a white circle on their page. They increasingly added more orange to their colour as they made larger and larger circles. On the second day, students drew the trees and coloured them in with a black sharpie marker. The grass was made using the same tinting process as the sunset. Students started by making a light green and painting it on their page. They used a middle tone for the next layer, then they used the darkest tone for the bottom. The small buds on the trees were added last.
