My Warhols spent our last few classes working on an acrylic piece in canvas board. The process of drawing and paying attention to detail and then of course adding colour and texture was enjoyable from start to finish. They took their time and it shows!
I came across this lovely painting by a little known artist and I just loved the viewpoint. Every Trini can tell exactly the spot this painting is done from. This is what good art does, it connects the viewer to a time or place and evokes feeling.
The Warhols painted a different view of the savannah but the inspiration piece gave us a good starting point. They are also using acrylics with this piece so they get to use a different texture paint and see how that affects their painting. Of course we also get to immerse ourselves in the wonderful feeling of painting nature.
Take a look as they each try to bring the Savannah to our studio!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
