Water Lilies Under the Bridge

So, yeah.  Monet's garden has been done again and again.  Why did I choose to do replay?  Well, I recently visited Monet's home in Giverny. 🌼🌸🌷 (For post, click HERE!)  My 2nd Graders put a slight twist on the project.  Check out the directions.


Kids drew bridges and water lilies with pencils.  
Then, they went over with oil pastels.
They highlighted the bridge with white.
Kids painted the background with liquid watercolor.

The next week, they turned a white oil pastel on its side and rubbed the water and the lilies only.
I kind of like the effect.
And yes, that was the twist!


The water lilies are under the bridge.  Here is a favorite of mine by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.  I like it a lot.  
I sat under a bridge and looked at a waterfall once.  It was fun.
