Frog Paintings & Digital Prints

Term: 3 Year: 2018

Frog watercolour paintings and digital prints inspired by artist Catherine McElroy

Students were asked to create a digital representation of a frog and also a watercolour painting of a frog. They researched and examined the paintings of watercolour artist Catherine Mc Elroy. Students decided upon a mood for their picture and determined the elements of art they would need in order to emphasise their selected ‘mood’. Students then completed an iPad artwork of a frog. This digital sketch was then used to create their watercolour frog. Students employed the grid technique to enlarge their artwork in order to help create their watercolour representation.
