We brainstormed many emotions and match them with a variety of landscapes. Some examples: Joyful Meadow, Angry Ocean, Insane Waterfall, Mad Mountains, Crazy Storm, Happy Sunset, etc. After brainstorming 4 different layouts We started drawing our best design onto gray paper.
Using oil pastels we started to add color with the same technique as Van Gogh! The key was matching colors to our chosen emotions and making sure not to use solid color but different line just like Van Gogh did in his paintings. The emotion, movement, and variety was so amazing to see.
