Radial Mountain Landscapes inspired by Jen Aranyi


These Jen Aranyi inspired landscapes have been floating around various art blogs and I was excited to try them! I looked at Cassie Stephen's excellent post for inspiration HERE

Jen's Instagram has videos of her painting and drawing process so I showed these to my Grade 4 - 6 class for inspiration. I pre-traced large circles onto heavy white paper. Students started by sketching out their mountains and shading them using hatching lines. They outlined this using ultra fine tip Sharpies. Then they drew evergreen trees along the bottom. Once everything was outlined, they painted the sky using watercolours. 

Some Grade 4 - 6 results:
