Following on from Monet's cityscape paintings we read 'Camille and the Sumflowers' as an introduction to the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh. Using poster paint we tried to recreate one of his landscape paintings but using his style of short lines or flicks. As Vincent liked to paint using oil paints, next week we will further build on our paintings by using both acrylic and oil paints.
Following our paintings of Monet's garden landscape, we looked at his cityscape paintings. We learnt that Monet like to paint the same scene but in different light and at different times of the year. One example of this are his Houses of Parliament paintings. We chose between two paintings; one in hues of yellow and Amber and one in shades of pink and blue. This week we worked using chalk pastels to enable us to blend the colours together.
