Oh the beautiful cherry blossoms!



We painted these cherry blossoms recently. We got a chance to practise our colour mixing by mixing a little white paint to red paint to make pink. We discovered that we could make various shades of pink depending on the amount of white paint we added to the red. If we wanted a very dark shade of pink then we only added a little white paint and if we wanted a light shade of pink we just kept adding more white paint and mixing it with the red until we got a shade we liked.
