Today we talked about the famous artist Claude Monet and his paintings and my Doodlebugs watched this little video on the artist. Then to bring them around to our painting for the day we looked at pictures of real irises and also of Monet's Iris paintings like the ones below.
The Doodlebugs then painted their version of his Irises :)
To get the Monet-effect they held 2 oil pastels at the same time and dragged them on their side to create a blurry look and to give the impression of texture. Next they painted in stems using different shades of green and finally they added in the purple Irises and yellow middles!
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 :)
