Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero


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. 









Having looked at a variety of paintings by the artist Claude Monet we worked hard to recreate the landscape painting of his garden. We used our fingers and cotton buds to paint in his style and could choose to have the structure of an outline to guide us or to start the painting on a 'blank canvas'. We worked hard to ensure both the style and colours remained true to Monet's original. 
We have been learning about the artist Jackson Pollack. Here we are working together to create our own paintings in his 'drip paint' style. 
And here are our finished pieces...
