I got this idea from Christie over at Fine Lines...if you don't follow her, go check out her blog! She is incredibly creative with so many awesome lessons to enjoy and be inspired!! Here is the original lesson! http://kids-finelines.blogspot.com/2012/11/santa-monica-seascapes.html
We started with my favorite liquid water color.
We learned about analogus/intermediate colors. They used blue for the sky and mixed turquoise and green to make blue-green for the water.
paint with water first, then apply the watercolor. They had to leave white spots for the clouds, and needed to have as many different VALUES of blue green (dark and light) in the ocean
Some added salt for a cool splashing effect
they could also tap their brush to make the waves look extra splashy!
