Friday 7th June (Mrs Dyer)

We have thoroughly enjoyed our Monet day. We used "Houses of Parliament" as our inspiration (as Mrs Dyer thought this looked like a castle and this term our experience outcome will be a castle day.)

We started by sketching the scene with a variety of drawing materials. We used charcoal, graphite pencils, crayons and water colour pencils. Our favourite seemed to be the charcoal and graphite pencils as they allow for variety in tone and texture.

After lunch we made paintings. We used crayons for our castle and water colours for our backgrounds. Thewax resisted the watercolours so could see our castle through the paintings. We also had to learn about how to create reflection and the different types of brushstrokes needed for different effects.
