Teen Still Life Paintings

As part of our Acrylic Painting series, the Teens painted fruit still life paintings.  Here is a peek at their work.

We warmed up by doing some exercises with brush strokes, surrounding color and layering of colors.

They picked the fruit they wanted to paint and the background colors.

We talked about using complimentary colors to create shadow and they practiced color combinations that would work for their paintings.

Then they got busy painting. They all seemed to really enjoy this project and I love the paintings they created.
