This is also an awesome project to do because I live in Northern New York, not very far from Lake George where Georgia O'Keeffe painted these! Many of my students have been there on vacation so it was a way for them to connect to O'Keeffe and the project we were doing.
I basically took the directions for this project verbatim from Painted Paper. After I presented Georgia O'Keeffe using a power point, we discussed depth and how to make things look farther away or closer to you in a painting. On that same day, we painted the sky first using light blue paint and we dabbed white in to make clouds. Next, we left a space and painted the water using dark blue. I showed students how to streak in white and black to give the illusion of light reflecting off the lake. Lastly, we added mountains in between the water and sky using brown and a little bit of black paint.
