Exploring one day from Nature's Eye.

Waking up my little sweetheart in the morning “Good Morning betu”.Time to wake up..
Another one….”Khwaish its afternoon we will go to play in the evening with friends”.
These are some of my lines to my daughter khwaish to tell her about the time of the day.
Nature has its own way to tell the time in the day…
So finally I thought let’s explore one day on the canvas in nature’s way with khwaish ,the different phase of one day Morning,afternoon,evening and night.
Well I showed her some pic in my nature's library folder and some clips from net to have little more idea on what we are doing. It becomes little easy to do task when u have some homework done.

Catch the glimpse of rising sun.

Evening view from my terrace.

Some faded pics of Moon.

This activity was more of fun and innovative since Khwaish got to make some new colours.We were out of orange colour stock so we made same by mixing  red and yellow plus we want little lighter shade of blue colour…so made it by mixing the same.

Sucessfully made orange and light blue shades.

Divided one piece of chart into four phase –coloured the sky at morning, afternoon, evening and night in different shades. Made small mountains and little tree next to same….added sun in different position which was very important…like morning it is rising. Night time can see stars and little trace of moon….May b its little cloudy night. Added little birds to make view more relatable.

Adding different shades to sky.

Morning sun is rising out of mountains...lots of birds about to start
their day.

          Evening view birds going back home.Night can see faded Moon .
May b its cloudy night.

So very proudly we present our little folding  hanging cards….with dawn to dusk.

    Khwaish's artwork is a masterpiece! Really!
