Let’s learn about the art element SPACE by observing tree branches & birds!  Let’s meet James Audubon who loved to study animals, especially birds!

John James Audubon ( April 26, 1785-January 27, 1851) was an American artist who drew birds, mammals, plants, and other subjects from nature.

Audubon grew up and studied art in Nantes, France, then settled in Pennsylvania, USA, as a young man. His passion was painting wildlife in watercolor – especially birds.

In 1827, he published the first of the color plates of “Birds of America.” The 435 plates were completed in 1839. The first edition was known as the “elephant folio” because it was so big (39.37 inches high).

The high CONTRAST of complementary colors will create a vibrant look.

WET-on-WET Painting Technique: 

Definition:

This is one of those terms that quite literally means what it appears to. Painting wet-on-wet is when you’re using fresh (wet) paint onto paint that is still wet rather than onto paint that has dried. The result is colors that blend into one another and mix in the painting.
