Painting “en plein air”

Class 2 have been studying Monet and trying to copy his work. So far the class have used 4 colours to copy a picture of The Houses of Parliament, created their own water lilies picture using pencil crayon and used masking tape to give the image of a bridge in Monet’s garden.

Today we painted “en plein air” (painting outside) and created impressions of the beautiful view. The class chose which part of the landscape they would paint, did a rough sketch and then used water colours to paint. All children took great care over their work resulting in some love ly pieces.
