crayon resist starry night

I read about this art project a while ago when we were learning about Vincent van Gogh. The above is his painting The Starry Night. We followed these instructions to create a mimic art crayon resist Starry Night.
Here they are studying the painting.
Getting started. Notice how the wind goes right over the top of that tree?! I thought that was cute.
Very nice use of short "brush strokes" Georgia.
Georgia's first one. They liked it so much they did 2.
We didn't have neon crayons but chose some brighter ones for the second go around.
Josie's second.
Here is her first one.
... and, Emeline's masterpiece.

he's in great hands here though!! Thought I'd fill you in.
