John James Audubon

Our family tries to include picture study during art time every week. This week we enjoyed looking at John James Audubon‘s art and trying to draw or paint in his style.

I usually bring up the image from the internet, right click on it and then set it as wallpaper for the desktop. We will keep the image up for about a week, taking time during that week to sit and observe the painting. We really get to know the painting this way. I will sometimes print the image out on photo paper and then slip it into a page protector for our art binder.

Here’s a link to the original artwork for this week:
