Following from our previous Art session. We have been looking at the different shapes and forms of George Stephenson's face. We discussed that not all faces are round and we often have distinctive features such as a prominent nose or chin. We used our knowledge from our previous session of colour mixing to practise the different shapes and form of the face including the eyes, nose, ears and lips. Here are the pictures below. 

Our aim in Art this half term is to paint a portrait of George Stephenson. To start, we have studied the colour of his eyes, hair, skin tone and clothes. We thought about how we use powder paints to mix colours in order to create the ones that will need. We practised mixing colours and recorded them on our grids, before deciding on the most appropriate colour for each strategy. We will be moving on to studying the shape of the eyes and face in order to build up to painting our portraits!
