Sensational Sunsets…

We have been inspired by the African sunset prints in our classroom and have loved creating our own versions of a Kenyan landscape at sunset. We started by painting the background with a wash of graduated colours; we started with a thin mixture of yellow paint and then gradually added red paint, using each new shade on our paper. We then used black paper to make silhouettes of trees (baobab and acacia), animals and grass to stick onto the background. The effect is quite stunning and we love seeing our work on display in the corridor, although we were a little sad to see the Great Fire of London display come down!
