“Stable Ghost”. On a more serious note with animals, I strolled past the stables after a local horse race. The haystack was a beautiful blend of shadow and varied color hay grasses. The stable window was empty and intriguingly dark. I was pleased to get a photo of this horse, resting after the race, a few windows down.
An Art Project for Kids that starts with a black line. Go to ARCHIVES March 2012 and scroll through the paintings to get to the directions for this project.
Sometimes after the entire painting has been filled in with color, the artists like to go back in and paint over their black lines to make sure they show up. This removes some of the stress of having to be overly careful about getting paint on their black lines.
After the black lines dried, the artists filled in some of their bigger shapes with a variety of one of the three primary colors.
The first step in this painting project was to experiment with LINE. We used black paint to make straight, squiggly, zigzag, diagonal, thick and thin lines.
