Make a Vegetable Painting, Roots and All

Vegetable paintingHere’s a vegetable painting idea I found over at Artsonia.com.

It’s great way to make a pretty painting and learn about root systems as well. If you can afford it, real watercolor paper will make all the paint texture look it’s best.

MATERIALS
• Watercolor paper
• Crayons
• Liquid Watercolor paint

DIRECTIONS

1. On watercolor paper, students draw in pencil a horizontal line across the middle of the page. They add a variety of underground vegetables below (carrots, beets, scallions, etc.) and stems and leaves above.

2. All pencil lines are traced with a crayon, pressure is needed to create dark lines.

3. The vegetable shapes are painted in with watercolor paint. When complete, the ground, leaves and sky are painted as well.
