Impressions of an Impressionist

Well we're almost at the end of our first proper 'week back' after the holidays. It's been good, but I'm exhausted by it all already ~ or perhaps it's just all the 'other' stuff that comes with term time that has hit me like a brick!

Anyway, today was 'ART' day and we took a little look at Monet. Here's our re-creations. 



Minnie & TP



All of us!

There's a couple more to come, but they're not quite finished yet :D

We used watercolours, mainly because I don't have any oils or any canvases! That said, I definitely think impressionist 'dabbing' would be easier to layer with oils. All the same, I thought the children did really well with this (and was quite pleased with mine too). Minnie, thought she would be useless at it, but actually hers turned out really well too ~ once she got going she was fine :D
