Using our sketchbooks to mix skin tones and how to mix a wash.
Self-portraits using all our practiced skills; drawing eyes, noses, observing our hair and positioning of features. We practiced mixing skin tones and washes in watercolours.
USING OUR SKETCHBOOKS TO RECORD OBSERVATIONS - SKETCHING OUTDOORS
We have recorded the changes in spring on our school playground. We have beautiful cherry blossom and mature trees that are just erupting with bright lime coloured leaves.
We used 6B and charcoal for quick mark-making.
Willow, Simon, Alistair, Abigail and Madeleine have been inspired to enter the sculpture competition during lockdown. Amazing sculptures - it's fabulous what can be made from cereal boxes, egg cartons and paper plates.
THE BIG DRAW
In Guided Reading sessions our book, 'Mary Anning - the Girl Who Cracked Open the World', has inspired us to create a group drawing based on Fossils. Like Mary, we have made lots of drawings from some real fossils or photographs. Rick was inspired to try Mary's Ichthyosaur. We used 6B, 2B, biro, graphite sticks and lots of charcoal and white chalk.
Following our first sketches in our sketchbooks, we now worked on a group cave drawing. We incorporated animals, hunts and hands which we've found in cave paintings from 30,000 years ago.
