Art Majors have the privilege of seeing me everyday and working on a piece throughout the week. This week we began discussing shade and tint. I tried to connect that when we are in the shade it is darker, therefore when we shade a color we want to make it darker by adding black. We began by painting their entire 12 x 18 white paper with a tinted color of their choice. Day two we added trees or a tree with the same color but now a shaded version.
The last step was to add snowflakes using the original color.
Here are a few completed pictures:
