Art Attack Blog, Week 5, term 3


For art attack my goal was to produce a piece of art related to our local landscape using either paint, watercolour or pastel.

With Mrs Marsh I learned about foreground, mid ground and background in landscapes.
With Mr Forman I learned about colour and complementary colours.
With Mr Rule I looked at the different landscape features of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula.

I learned with Mrs Marsh that the foreground means the front of the drawing or picture, and you have to make things in the foreground bigger than things in the background e.g. a tree in the foreground is bigger than hills in the background (it sounds crazy but it's true).

This is my art. It is a pastel drawing of the curators house at the botanical gardens.
I like it because it has lots of colour and I think it is a good drawing. It was hard because I am used to drawing Elephants, flowers and stuff like that.
