Following our learning of the Daedalus and Icarus myth, we have been studying wing formation and sunset watercolour paintings.
It was really enjoyable to practise watercolours again and build on the skills we used to paint watercolour pictures of mountains in term 1. This time, rather than a colour wash in a single blue for the sky, we had to blend and mix red, orange and yellow to create a natural sunset. After, we looked closely at Icarus style silhouettes and had to pay close attention to the human and bird mixed-form.
I can't wait to display them around school, the effort has led to some fantastic results.
