Landscape painting

This rising second grader had an image in mind when deciding on a landscape.  We pulled up the scene on the iPad and discussed foreground, middle ground, and background.  My student mixed her own colors to show that cool colors recede!  She layered this painting a LOT and I’m proud of what she was able to accomplish in just 2 hours.
