A Year 3 Class Post

David Hockney

This term we have been looking at the work of the British artist David Hockney in our Art lessons.

Last Friday we began looking at some of Hockney’s most well-known work portraying water, and in particular ‘A Bigger Splash’, which shows the splash of a swimming pool after someone has entered it.

We discussed this type of water and how it looks very different to other types of water / movements of water. We then used pencil, charcoal, paint and oil pastels to convey a wave, a glass of water, rain, a pond and a splash concentrating on the range of textures and colours.

We all did very different, exciting and interesting interpretations of the water.
