According to our old friend Kandinsky (as well as to one or two members of 1b) the circle is a pretty peaceful kind of shape. So just imagine how very peaceful a whole lot of circles must feel!
We took a look at this painting…..
by Kandinsky and it inspired us to have a go at making a similarly peaceful painting of our own. So we took a sheet of paper with pre-drawn squares. And we drew con-cen-tric circles (that means circles one inside the other) in each of the squares using oil pastel crayons.
Next, we chose watercolour paints in combinations that we found pleasing. A ring of blue maybe…..followed by one of green.
And then how about a background of yellow…..or russet red?
And finally – are you sitting comfortably?
Peace at last!
