Tints & Shades

These black and white cats inspired by artist, Laurel Burch.
We started with a simple line drawing in oil pastel and then mixed paint to get various shades of grey.
Initially it was challenging ensuring all our cats were big enough to paint. After a few attempts we managed to fIll most of the space on the page!
This was an opportunity for us to listen carefully to instructions and to explore what happens when you mix black and white together! 
We also added some yellow to our paintings too.
After these have dried, we will be adding some pastel to enhance the patterns we have made.
Next week we aim to complete these, so stayed tuned.
I am sure Gareth Morgan would approve of these cats - they will not be eating any wildlife!!
