New Forest Art

As part of the topic 'The New Forest as a Sustainable Tourist Destination', Year 5/6 have been investigating the beauty of the New Forest.


Using snippets from photographs, they have used watercolours to recreate New Forest scenes. First, they picked out which photograph they liked the most, then chose which part they were going to keep, and which part they were going to paint. They used thick brushes, with plenty of water, to create a wash for the background and then used thinner brushes to add the detail. Finally, they added the piece from the original photo.
