Pumpkin Still Life

Before seguing into Still Life, we conducted a wee buoyancy experiment with our Jack-be-Littles...

Then I asked that everyone sketch a pumpkin, noting only three aspects:
2. lines and
3. stem
These would be transferred to watercolour paper with oil pastels.

When O created her sketch, their was a center with lines extending outwards.
I was curious which perspective she had drawn, so I asked from where she was looking at the pumpkin.
Sure enough, she replied that she was looking down.

By using oil pastels to outline the shape and detail before painting in watercolour, we were playing with another science experiment; density and surface tension.
