Like an artist with a studio and a world outside

With the success of the drawing tip and studio work in two lessons I wanted to combine the process into one. So we had fun with water colours, creating a ground on paper, while it dried we drew the back of the house. Then we took these drawings in and used them as the inspiration for the ink drawing we did on top of the water colour ground. I hope this showed the children a practical demonstration of the connection in landscape of the outside world and the inner world of the artist studio.
