Art in 3C We looked very closely… We used chalk and charcoal. We chose a plant or flower that took our fancy. We looked again and again to check. We looked at the shapes, lines, shade and texture. We decided how to use the chalk and charcoal to get the shade we wanted. We looked closely at the shapes of the leaves. The plants were all very different. The flowers were very different too. We started with a white chalk outline and built up the shades.
