Stay tuned tomorrow for a really fun giveaway involving sea creatures!
Now, you can make this scene your very own. Just be sure to turn your pastel stick on its side and ‘skumble’ in the water color. Blend it with your fist so that it is colorful. Think about how the water is darkest at the bottom because of the depth.
- Print this lesson: Just click the green, ‘print-friendly’ button at the top, left of this post. You can choose to print the lesson with or without photos. By clicking the ‘remove photos’ box, you may print the text directions only.
- A note on chalk pastels: Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons (over 35 lessons now) are all contained in the post Pastels plus links to tutorials. A simple set is very affordable.
- The practical aspects of a mess: Pastels are blessedly messy. We always have baby wipes close by to wipe hands. We wear something we don’t mind getting stained or don a smock.
