Describing Paintings: Calm or Stormy

Young writers use nouns, verbs, and adjectives to describe details in two paintings. One depicts a sunny landscape, and the other shows a cloudier view. They write a narrative inspired by the paintings, paying attention to transitional words or phrases and sensory details. They will then use color and line to create their own calm or stormy landscape.
