“Every artist was first an amateure”
But this expertise creator isn’t much of an amateure are they? And before you ask, no I did not create this masterpiece in the preview picture. This piece was created by Josh H in year 6 who is from a neighboring school. His artwork was a part of the travelling art show that came by my school and I chose it as my favourite one. Why you ask? Well here are some reasons:
1) What materials have been used to make the artwork?
I am not 100% sure if there were some “Behind the scenes” materials behind this artwork but I am pretty sure these are most of the materials: the “canvas” was an A4 piece of paper, there were many water colours: mauve purple, grey, different shades of blue, natural greens and a little bit of orange, they are all very mild, and the outlines of the leaves were created by oil pastels.
2) What techniques have been used to create the artwork?
There were many techniques that showed within this artwork but the most outstanding ones were; beautiful watercolor painting, strokes, and clouds, realistic leaf sketching and outlining, and most importantly the right setting of the right mix of colours.
3) What do you like about it?
I like how it resembles and reminds me of so many different things like majestic gumtrees, leaves swaying gently in the breeze, a natural bonfire scent, and the feel of climbing up the gumtree that the branch of leaves belong to.
