The first step of the project was mixing watercolor paint for the winter sky.

Students had three colors to choose from as they blended them together to create their sunset sky.

The next step was to add trees using ink.

This process required the students to control the brush in a new way as they allowed the lines to be formed from their loose brush strokes.

Everyone was part of the process as they learned from each other’s creative process.

The next step was to add shadow to the landscape with blue watercolor.

This required everyone to look at the whole image beyond the process of adding shadow to the trees.
