Peter Thorpe inspired art

In P7AL, our artwork has been inspired by Peter Thorpe.  

Peter began creating his work when he became so fed up of wasting paint, that he started to use his left overs to create abstract backgrounds with a space theme. We liked this artist as it linked to our learning in World Around Us, and we thought his use of bold and bright colours really captured our own personal interpretations of Space.  

We have used oil pastels to achieve the abstract backgrounds as well as planet interpretations. The class used blending techniques to capture the three dimensional and multi tonal appearance of Space. In the foreground is the focal point: a rocket which pops out against the background.  

Well done P7!
