We first looked at pictures of houses on the water. We noticed the many different shapes in the architecture. We looked at the reflection in the water and noticed how the shapes are a little different and we talked about the colors in the reflections too.
We used pastels to draw a line separating the land and the water. We next used different cut shapes to make houses gluing them onto the paper above the horizontal line. We used pastels to make details, windows, door, etc. We next used the pastels to create the water and reflections.
