Using watercolours

Robins have been learning about Picasso’s Blue and Red Period.

Blue Period – Paintings that were part of his blue period were painted between 1901 and 1904. These paintings were painted using Monochromatic cold tones of blues and greens. The subjects of these painting were poor people suffering in poverty.

Rose Period – The Rose Period lasted from 1904 to 1906. Picasso was happy and Harlequins, circus performers and clowns appear frequently in the Rose Period. He painted with warmer tones of reds, and earthy tones.

Robins improved their watercolour art skills. They experimented with the amount of water to put on their paper/brush and the amount of paint needed to produce water colour washes.  They  experimented creating gradients of the same colour and how to use the qualities of the paint to produce an even wash of colour.
