The headteacher at the school I work at is leaving soon so the other teachers asked me if I would produce some pictures to go on the front of cards for each class to give to the head.
Each class has an animal name so the five paintings I produced are of each animal.
I decided to try a different technique for these paintings. I used water colour paints with colour pencil over the top.
For the hedgehog I added another step of making marks with a candle first to get the white highlights on the spines.
I really love how the paintings turned out, and so do the rest of the staff. In fact they were a bit amazed as they were only expecting cartoon drawings.
I think my favourite is the rabbit, but I might be a bit biased because I work in Rabbit class.
