Our whole school focus has been watercolours for the month of March so we used images from our traditional tales to practise our skills.
We learnt about hue, tint, tone and shade and how to use water to vary the intensity of the paint.
We chose traditional prints to work from and traced the image as a starting point. After we had practised using the watercolours, we used our knowledge of intensity of colour to give our painting depth.
The paintings that we produced are an excellent complement to our stories.
