Here’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.
• Watercolor paper
• Liquid Watercolor paint
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.
