Adding colour and paint to our drawings of people

 

Today we learnt how to add more realistic features to our people by adding clothes, hair etc. We then used watercolours to add colour to our people and backgrounds.

Putting our people into a scene

 

The next stage in our learning journey in Art is to learn to draw our people in action on a background. First we drew out a simple background to put our people into. Some of us chose forests, some parks, some even chose the Egyptian desserts. We then used the mannequins again and put our people in action into our scenes.

Learning To Draw People

 

In order to produce our own paintings in the style of the Ancient Egyptians and Alaa Awaad, we need to learn to draw people, paying close attention to proportion and position so that our people look realistic.

We used wooden mannequins to help us to achieve this. Look at the amazing results of our observational drawings of our “men” in many different positions!

Exploring work by our chosen artist - Alaa Awaad

 

Today, we looked at many examples of Ancient Egyptian tomb and papyrus paintings, inferring what we could from the images we saw.
We then compared the Ancient Egyptian art to the paintings by Alaa Awaad and noticed the similarities between them. Alaa Awaad uses the same style as the Ancient Egyptians.

Finally we had a go at completing on if Alaa’s paintings, copying his style as best we could. Have a look at the results!
