The students are going to an art museum tomorrow.
Miss Wang is telling them about some paintings.
Look at the two pictures on the blackboard. Which one do you like?
I like the one on the left. I like the colours. The night sky is beautiful.
This is an oil painting. It's colourful.
I like the one on the right. I like horses. This horse looks powerful.
This is a Chinese ink painting. It's usually in black and white.I like Chinese ink paintings too.
Little Leo liked drawing very much.
His friends all liked his pictures.
"You're going to be an artist, Leo." they always said.
Little Leo took drawing lessons.
In the first lesson, the teacher put an egg on the table and asked Little Leo to draw it.
"That's easy!" said Little Leo.
In the second lesson, the teacher still asked him to draw an egg, but he put the egg on a plate.
Little Leo felt unhappy and asked, "Why do we draw eggs all the time?"
"Look carefully! It's an egg again, but it looks different," said the teacher.
Little Leo worked hard and became a great artist.
