Third Grade Realistic Tree Paintings

After reviewing warm colors, third grade needed a cool colors project. Cool colors are opposite the warm colors on the color wheel. The three main cool colors are Purple, Blue and Green. Students used Purple and Blue to paint a sunset/almost nighttime sky, then painted a realistic tree black to look like a silhouette.

They were a little nervous about not doing lollipop looking trees like they are used to. But practice paid off and these are so great!
