Hi. I once had my students find an opening sentence or two in a mystery
story, sort of; it was a dark windy night and there was only light in one
window in the old house on the hill etc. etc.. Then they made a large
drawing in which they tried to capture the atmosphere; clouds and trees
moving in the wind and so forth. They used thick pencils and then gave the
pictures thin black watercolour washes. We had some very nice and a "little
scary" works.
Regards from the far north, rosa
