Pretty Pastels

Sunflowers are my favorite and oil pastels are messy....everyone wins with this project! 
Three instructions only:
1)  Draw a sunflower from any point of view.
2)  Petals must be sunflower-ish, but the middle was all up to them.
3)  The original pink color of paper should be showing through...most of them loved this because they didn't like that pink paper color.  It encouraged coloring all the space and layering and blending the pastels along the way.  This was also very difficult for some of my Chickadees...but overall I am loving them. 
The oil pastels are so blended the one looks painted.
Happy Friday
