My older students learned about Katsushika Hokusai, a Japanese artist most famous for his series of woodblock prints titled "36 views of Mt. Fuji." His most famous image is The Great Wave, but I gave my students a several images in the series to take inspiration from. We worked in watercolor and tried to capture Hokusai's style and attention to detail. We also had to have patience to create washes and let them dry before adding more elements to our paintings. I love the combination of pencil lines kept, and ones painted over in small brush strokes of watercolor.
