Paint a Still Life in Primary Colors
Primary colors red, blue and yellow, can be mixed to create any color in the rainbow. When they are used together in a picture without mixing them together, they create bold, eye-catching paintings. Kids will love painting shapes of objects in a still life while using strong colors showing highlights and shadows. Older kids can mix white and black into their paints creating tints and shadows for a more complex painting exercise.
What You Need:
- White watercolor paper (11” x 17”)
- Red, Yellow and Blue tempera paint
- Still life items (we used fruit and a bowl)
- Clamp light
- White and black tempera paint for older kids
