Using previous knowledge on creating shades of blue and perspective, students first used a blue and white paint palette to create shades of blue to create their evening sky.
First they added white, little by little to their blue, creating tints of blue, to form each ring starting with blue only from the outside edge. The center was left white to act as the moon in their sky.
Once their painting was dry, students painted cone shapes for trees with black tempera paint.
Branches were then added using smaller brushes and final details (smaller branches and a bird) were then added on the last day with black sharpie.
