|"1 1/2 inch wide pebble."|
These are Rock Paintings - well more like Pebble Paintings. Each student designed their expressive face on paper and then painted it on the pebble. They concentrated on the eyes and mouth. The students needed to figure out how to paint the parts of the faces to make them contrast the pebble. (I gave several demos to show them how to layer the eyes to create an outline, iris and pupil - plus add a glint). I had many students start over - to paint it correctly and to "raise the bar". Too many students want to rush and get done but I needed to teach them the idea of quality. They also had to learn to paint on a small/tiny scale. The pebbles were sooo minimal - they had to hold a paint brush correctly to make finite marks.
