In Art Year 4 have been developing drawing and observation skills inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau. We found out Rousseau was a French painter who loved to paint jungle scenes even though he never set foot in a jungle before. Instead he used illustrations from picture books. We decided to produce our own jungle scene like Rousseau and used our sketch book to produce different shaped leaves, flowers and animals. We then chose a sketch from our book and used pastel and crayons to add colours. The end result is very impressive – Well done Year 4!
