This was one of Tasha's lessons. We talked about what a still-life and point-of-view was. We then looked at some fruit at our tables and drew them with a top-down p-o-v (making sure not to forget to draw our plate). Then they used the back of a spoon to paint the fruit using tempera. We talked about light source and adding a highlight and shadow to our fruit. Next, we outlined everything with a black crayoned. Then they used liquid watercolor to paint the plate a solid color. Lastly, they used liquid watercolor to paint the rest of the background and assortment of colors by placing random 'splotches' of paint.
