Room 9 has started on a beautiful piece of autumn artwork.
Some of us collected leaves and then we studied the veins, the shapes and the colours.
We used pastels in autumn colours to cover our entire page trying to blend the shades of colour together as we went. Then we painted over the entire page with black paint. While we were waiting for the pain to dry we practiced drawing different types of leaves in our sketch books. Our next step will be to carefully scratch the outlines of our leaves into our black paint, revealing the beautiful autumn tones that lie beneath it. I will upload the end result later in the week.
