Cherry Blossoms at Sunset

I am getting a bit behind these days.  So much to do and so little time.  With YAM quickly approaching and our district show, which is also the same week as our school leadership day.  Both events requiring special attention and displayed artwork, I feel a bit overwhelmed.  But, enough of that.  I want to show off these little beauties from my third graders, our cherry blossom trees at sunset.  These were a three day project with one day set aside for watercoloring the background, a day to draw out the tree and color (they also added grass and leaves to the tree if they wanted), and one day to add the blossoms.  I showed them several ways they could do the cherry blossoms and let them choose how they wanted to finish out this project.  

This youngin' decided that she preferred the back of her watercolor paper better, how the colors bleed through the back.  I think she was right, it made for a more interesting picture.
