We painted with watercolor paints over oil pastel drawings in the art group yesterday. We've done this several times in the past (with crayons or colored pencils, not the oil pastels) but haven't in a while, so it was nice to come back to an old standby. This is Henry's painting above.
We use watercolor paints in tubes and just mix it with water in a bowl ahead of time (half a minute ahead of time, in my case). The oil pastels are probably about 20 years old--my grandmother gave them to me--but they work okay. Not great, but okay.
Here's Maia's painting.
And here's Thalia's painting.
The tractor made an appearance again today and was much coveted at the art table. Not sure who brought it in, but it's now considered an art tool.
