warm and cool colours

Teach your students about warm and cool colours and how to gradate watercolour with this shells watercolour project.  This project includes:

  • 3 different shells to watercolour.
  • 2 Good examples of shells that have been watercoloured.  One with warm colours, one with cool colours. (Pictured above)
  • A PowerPoint that introduces what warm and cool colours are.  It also introduces the project and includes a link to a video that demonstrates how to gradate watercolour.  There are two versions of the PowerPoint; one with the spelling ‘colour’ and one with the spelling ‘color’.

You can use the video with your students or for your own professional development.  This is a great way to teach your students color theory and how to gradate watercolor.

You can look at the ‘How to Gradate Watercolour‘ on Youtube.
