A field full of daisies

Made by Annika, 10 years old

You need:
  1. white drawing sheet A3 size
  2. tempera paint in blue, green, white, yellow and red
  3. egg boxes or saucers
  4. brushes
  5. jars with water
  6. newspapers
  7. paper towels
  8. coloured paper for background
Daisies (bellis perennis) are, until it freezes, found in lawns. View pictures of daisies and discuss what they look like. Children start to paint the grass. They have to make their own green colours by mixing blue, white and yellow. Paint the entire sheet with small vertical strokes.

When the grass is dry, the daisies can be painted. For on the field daisies are larger bigger then further away. Use a small brush and a lot of paint, to make sure the green grass is really covered with the white paint of the flower. Use a different colour green for the stalks or take the unmixed colour green directly from the bottle. Paint the hearts of the flowers with big yellow blobs.
Paste the artwork after drying on a matching background after drying.

Made by children from 9-12 years old
