All age groups have been studying perspective and learning about watercolor this month. The youngest elementary art students applied their new knowledge and skills to complete Abstract Landscape Watercolors.
We started by looking at the work of Ted Harrison. He is a Canadian artist who created beautiful colorful abstract landscape of the Yukon Territory. Follow the link above to see some of his work.
We talked about one point perspective, foreground, middle ground and background.
Then we completed our own landscapes. I encouraged them to use expressive colors in the style of Ted Harrison.
I love how they turned out. Hope they brighten your homes during this gloomy Seattle winter.
