Chipmunk and Water Lily by Nicole - grade 2

 Nicole frequently uses photos for  reference information, but that doesn't stop her from creating her own compositions.   Before beginning a picture, she enjoys planning where her center of interest will go and what elements she'll add or leave out.  In the case of this simplified but accurate depiction of a chipmunk, she decided on a bright green background and the addition of a sprinkling twigs and flowers for interest.  Doesn't this picture look like something you might encounter in a gallery of modern art!   I also like her delicate mixed media water lily!
