Just to throw in my 2 cents worth....:)
My second and third year art students are painting landscapes using
acrylic or watercolor paints. They understand the need to cover the
canvas or paper, but they want to paint it BRIGHT BLUE. I mean BRIGHT
BLUE. I am having the problem convincing them that the color is too
intense and that the particles in the air along with the pollution
dull the sky's color as it gets closer to the earth. I even walk them
outside and have them compare. I would love to have easels and allow
them to paint outside, but until I get some $$$$, I can not afford
them. Any suggestions?
