Our still lifes were made with observational drawing of real fruits and vegetables. Children observed the surface and the colour, the shape and the size and tried to capture it in our drawings.
Paintings are made with aquarell paints on aquarell paper.
In addition we used inks and wooden sticks to add the outlining and incorporate the writing into our artworks.
I tried to do the writing in this particular project with kids before but since they are only 6 and many struggles to write I was about to give up.
Yet sticks and inks turned out wonderfully. It was much more of a play than serious writing. And the works are stunning!
