We started this project learning a bit about Vincent Van Gogh and looking at some of his art works. Then it was on to our own creating!
First, students learned about a horizon line and how the size of objects change depending on how far or near they are. Students drew a horizon line and a road/path using one-point perspective. They observed that the road narrows as it gets further away from the viewer.
Then it was time to begin painting the foliage. Students used a circular motion and blended colours to create an Autumn scene. Painting the road/path was next. Students considered the direction of their brush strokes as well as blending colours to create their roads/paths. Students used some painted paper to create a cabin and added details with a pastel.
The completed projects are beautiful!!
Thank-you to Painted Paper Art for the inspiration
