Hundertwasser Landscape

I was inspired by one of Friedensreich Hundertwasser’s paintings to make this abstract landscape.
1. I cut a wavy rectangular shape of green tissue, large enough to cover the bottom 2/3 of the paper. A 50/50 mixture of water and glue was brushed under and over it to attach it to the paper.
2. I cut a bunch of round blue circles, and also glued them to the paper, overlapping a bit at times.
3. After the glue was dry, I used Sharpie markers to draw the tree trunks and lots of organic lines.
4. The sky was filled in with watercolor pencils, and then painted with water.

I love this project!
Kathy-what grade did you try it with? I'm thinking 5th grade, but wanted your input! Thanks for all your hard work!!

I used it in a small afterschool class that was mixed. I think 4th and 5th graders would be fine with this.
