Abstract watercolors… follow instructions!

acquerello astr

Talking about lyric abstractionism of Kandinsky and Paul Klee with students in grade 9, we painted a small abstract watercolor with a small guide of “instructions” to follow.
Each student should draw freehand with oil pastels:
– Five different lines
– Three circles, some even concentric
– A geometric shape
– An organic form
– A symbol

The lines of the drawing can interbreed with each other freely and shapes can get out of edges of the sheet. In this way, you create spaces to be filled with watercolors. The lines will define fields where color tints can fade, mix or overlap. Here are our abstract watercolors
