Moody Water
Gallery 234
The way an artist depicts water can relate a lot about a scene. Is it stormy and rough, or calm and placid? Does it look inviting or threatening? Take a look at some of the different depictions of water and use the many art supplies to create your own seascape collage. What mood will your water be in?
