Term: 1 Year: 2006
With the focus on landscapes and inspired by aerial photographs, students have created a large, visually striking
piece that reflects the diversity of colour and texture within the Australian Landscape.
- We discussed aerial or birds eye views of landscapes and the diversity of tone, texture and pattern.
- In order to achieve contrast within the collaged piece, students painted 2 warm and 2 cool coloured, highly
patterned line pieces on A4 paper using Ocaldo water blocks.
- Students then looked at aerial pictures that have a stream or waterway running through it and we discussed
the different colours of the land and the different river patterns.
- Students then drew the rivers on cartridge paper, tore up their cool line colour paper and an assortment
of cool plain and PVA glued them along the rivers edge.
- The remaining areas are then filled with warm coloured papers, both pattern and plain.
- The river section was made by pouring and spreading PVA glue with a ight dust of blue food dye.
