Inspired by Monet, a founder of impressionist painting and landscape art work, Year 5 created their very own landscape scene featuring a kite flying with its reflection in the water below. We used so many different techniques to build up our pictures. Fristly, we used paint and our fingers to apply a simple base of colour in an impressionist way. We used soft pastels to create a blending of fresh colour as a second layer. Next we cut out kite shapes using black card and filled the kite with different colours of tissue paper. Following this, we used PVA glue to secure a 3D kite string to our scene. Finally we used charcoal to create a reflection of our kite in the water below.
Fantastic work Year 5.
