  • Awesome Lessons...a couple questions

    Hi! I love this lesson. I’m just about to do it with my students next week. I had a question. Should the students paint with warm colors only? I’m wondering if they do cool what it would look like when they shade with warm colors. I don’t think it will look near as good as it does with warm paint and cool Prisma. I have only done it myself with warm harmonious paint colors and won’t have time to do a sample in cool harmonious colors so I just thought I’d check? If you have a sample or a student project who used the cool colors to paint, could you send me a pic? Thanks so much!

    • Hi, I don’t have a sample to send you but I have done it both ways with students. I think it’s good to give them the choice of either warm or cool harmonious paint and then shading with the opposite on top. Both will look good because of the contrast. I think if you do a display of the work when it’s finished that it looks good with a variety. I hope that helps.

      • Thanks so much for getting back to me. You are right. The cool colors look great too with the warm Prisma on them. I too agree it will look nice to have a wide variety to display. I was able to make a small cool paint sample and was able to add warm shading on some of it and it looks great. Can’t wait for my students to start these. They are going to look amazing. Thanks so much for the awesome lesson!

  • Jasper John’s watercolor

    This was very helpful and a good lesson. I like all the lessons I have downloaded from this site.
    I would love to have more distance learning lessons since my classes won’t be returning to the school until next year.
