Colour Mixing – Warm Colours

Colour Mixing – Warm Colours

After looking at the paintings of the ‘Great Fire of London’ the children identified that both images had a warm glow in the sky.

We discussed together the colours that made this glow and how we could create some of these shades of orange.  The children then had a go at mixing their own shades of orange by adding different amount of red to the yellow paint. The children had great fun and discovered that the more red makes a deeper shade of orange. Well done Year 2!
