Paint Nature

Assalamu allaikum,

This weekend we had our first painting class. Allah has given the whole for us to look at. I wanted my students to think and look around them to be inspired by nature. We also looked at the application and color names of the watercolors. They made an index card of all the colors. Since there are so many colors and variations of colors, we cannot simply name a blue a blue. Instead we have to name it by its specific color. In our index card, we can blue as Phthalo blue or Ultramarine.

I asked the students what kind of landscape they can think of. After we discussed their answers, we browsed the internet for images they found to be easy to draw and nice to look at.

One class chose a sunset and the other class chose a desert.

Here are the results:
