The class is learning about color and value.

We did one painting using all transparent paints, and then this painting using all opaque or semi-opaque paints - and only 3 colors - a yellow, red and blue.  This was also a study in values.

First we all took the same photo and created a simple value study.  This was done by placing tracing paper over the photo and darkening areas with a pencil.

After that we put down our lightest color, then our darkest colors.
