Mixed Media Land and City Scapes in Maple Class

We have been learning different ways of creating landscapes by learning about the work of landscape artist Vanessa Gardiner and cityscape artist the Shoreditch Sketcher.

We created our landscape backgrounds on wood using geometrical shapes inspired by Vanessa Gardiner, we thought about the shapes we would use and the colours to give maximum effect.

Next we drew steam trains on acetate inspired by the work of the Shoreditch Sketcher, these were then mounted on top of our landscapes.
