Georgia O'keeffe

This week, we are learning a great American artist in the 20th century, Georgia O'keeffe.
She is famous for painting close-up floral images, which creates abstract kind of imagery.
Before the lesson, students were collecting flowers outdoor and we then brought them back to the studio.
We looked at O'keeffe's work and then examined the flowers closely.
As often, we practiced drawing a flower together, then we added more flowers on the paper.
The technique we learned today about watercolor is watercolor wash.
*Materials: Oil pastel, watercolor, watercolor paper, brushes.
