5th grade artists looked at iPod's use of silhouettes. We discussed why we thought iPod would use silhouettes of people instead of using real photographs of real people in their ads. We had some great discussion. We concluded that the iPod folks probably chose to use silhouettes because silhouettes could represent many different people. And maybe many different people would want an iPod after seeing these images.
We took the idea of silhouettes and created a landscape drawing with crayons and water colors. We drew the trees in the foreground very big, the middle ground is the island with the other trees. This island is further away so its a bit smaller, and the background features a horizon line and sunset. We used the "wet-on-wet" technique with our watercolors to create a blended and colorful sunset sky.
