This is an example of a wet-on-wet
watercolor painting that was done by one of our children at around age 9. The technique of wet-on-wet involves actually soaking
the paper (ideally, a very sturdy weight of 140 lb.) in water for at least 15 minutes, then using high-quality
watercolors (we like Stockmar) to create the painting. The water on the paper helps to create a flowing effect. Watercolor
painting is one form of artistic expression that is done regularly for main lesson work.
This is another example of a wet-on-wet watercolor painting that was done at
around age 9. The idea for the painting comes from a story that was told as part of a painting class for homeschoolers.
This was also done in the same painting class, at age 9.
