These painted pictures are only partly done by the artist... you can draw a picture or not, then just put on a few bits of watercolor paints, and place your picture out in the rain! What will nature create for you?

What You'll Need

How We Did It

RainScapes
The mortar and pestle is optional--use scissors or a stone to cut and mash up bits of paints if you like.
RainScapes
When I came up with the idea for this craft a few years ago, we didn't make pictures, just used bits of paint. This time we thought a scene would be fun, so we drew pictures first, using watercolor pencils (you could use colored pencils, if you like.)

Finally, they were set out in the rain--being checked upon several times a minute, of course! (That's the fun part--watching the art form and change.) Hooray for rainy days! After careful watching, bring them in and let them dry, when you think your art is just right!
