Year 4

Term 1

This term we have been experimenting with different paints and techniques. We looked at the work of artist Winslow Homer and talked about how he depicted the sea. We then spent some time experimenting with brush techniques to create smooth waters and crashing seas. We also looked at flicking paint, dragging sticks through wet paint, creating watercolour washes and sprinkling powder paint onto it and also used wax crayons with watercolour paints. Finally we created a Viking ship scene using collage materials, thinking about the weather and the type of sky that we wanted for the background.
