I'm not a fan of them in my house, but I love them on paper!
In our final week of summer classes, we zoomed in on the insect world (and one spider).
Looking at the lines and shapes of the head, thorax and abdomen, we constructed our 'bugs'. Referring to the color wheel, we mixed analogous colors (neighbors on the color wheel) and used complementary colors (opposites on the color wheel) to give our paintings a pop of contrast. All the while, we kept our watercolors juicy - but in control.
