Watercolour art

Linking with our topic, Animals and me, we have been using the book 'Animal Gallery' by Brian Wildsmith to inspire our own watercolour creations. The book contains beautiful artwork which depicts the collective nouns for a variety of animals. We started with an elicitation task where we chose a picture to try and replicate, we then discussed the colours, background and brush strokes used to inspire our own versions. We all agreed that we could see a huge improvement between our first attempt and our second version after self assessment of our initial artwork.
