We continued to study Fiona French and her illustrations by looking at the book "Paradise". The colors are amazing and the images have a stained glass quality to them.
For our illustrator inspired work we created images using black glue and watercolor.
Students sketched out their ideas first and then made a final drawing on watercolor paper in pencil. Next we took white Elmer's glue that had been tinted black with acrylic paint and "drew" over our lines with it. This creates the leaded look of stained glass.
Finally we added lots and lots of color by adding watercolor paints in all of the compartments we created with our black glue.
