5th grade Realistic Animal Portraits

My fifth graders are wrapping up their last year of elementary school and I sure will miss them.  One of their last projects of the year was to paint a portrait of an animal.  We used several layers of watercolors to get a realistic effect.  First, they chose one color for a background wash.  Then, they painted the shadows using a dark blue.  Finally, they used realistic colors to complete the painting.  I think they turned out great!

Have a great week,
