This painting is called Birches by Siegfried Yelin.
We think it’s a lovely peaceful impressionist picture of a park. Do you think that he used a method of painting called stippling?
Lucy: I think that this is a peaceful painting with gentle colours and strokes . It makes me feel like I’m just longing around in a park.
Emily: I like it. It looks like there is confetti flying around though. It is sorta boring though. What do you think?
Lucy:I think so too.
Watercolour tip(by Emily)
Colours are the topic of today. You only need to buy a few tubes of paint(red, blue, yellow, black and if you’re very special white) normally if you’re painting onto white to make a colour lighter all you need to do is add water! Red and yellow makes green, red and blue makes purple, blue and yellow makes green and a mix of any of those then you get a tertiary colour but there are too many combinations too go through. That’s about it. If you wish to know how to make a colour state your question in the comments box and one of us will try hard to answer you.
