This week, Year 5 have been refining our watercolour skills. We have built on our colour mixing work from a previous lesson by using various shades of green to show the effect that light has on trees. We did this by using lighter shades of green which we then changed subtly to darker shades to emphasise the position of the Sun. Additionally, we practised a variety of techniques when painting our trees such as “wet on wet” and scribbling with the objective of making our trees lifelike. We will use these methods when painting our final piece which will be a landscape of our school field.
