Layered Winter Landscape

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Layered Winter Landscape I found this project at, a wonderful source for creative ideas.
1. Each student draws three lines that tilt a little to each side on a horizontal sheet of paper. These sections will each represent foreground, middle ground and background in the picture.
2. They draw three simple tree shapes, one extending up from each line. All should be spread out to give the branches room.
3. The ground lines inside each tree then need to be erased. The students will then trace all the pencil lines with a black sharpie. Lastly, the hills, trees and sky are to be filled in with oil pastels. Most pastels have a dark and light green, orange and yellow and brown, which may be used to shade each section to give it depth. If you use water-soluble pastels, you can brush the artwork with water to smooth the edges between the colors.
