Bluebirds learnt how to create a wash today to represent the cave wall before mixing and blending water colours to create some very authentic looking cave paintings. The children have really enjoyed working with different mediums to create different effects.
We like pencil best because it’s fun (Seth), it’s not too messy (Mila) and you can produce a neat picture (Ibrahim).
We preferred using the chalk pastels because you get a sharp effect whereas the watercolour is smoother (Ava) and you can blend the colours (Millie). Jessica thought the pastels are brighter but the watercolours bring the different colours out.
