Descriptive Writing

Descriptive Paint?

Yes, descriptive paint.  We are going to practice our descriptions by describing paint colors.  We will use similes and metaphors to make it rich and exciting.

  • Metaphors: a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable: “I had fallen through a trapdoor of depression,” (Oxford)
  • Simile: a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind, used to make a description more emphatic or vivid (e.g., as brave as a lion, crazy like a fox). (Oxford)

What to do:

  • Pick any three colors from this site.
  • Take a screen shot of each color
  • Stick it in Pages, and write a one or more sentence description for each one.
