Down the hills to Berry’s Bay
Roland Wakelin painted this view of Berry’s Bay outdoors so he could look at the effect of light and colour in the landscape.
- Look at the flecks of light on the grass. Describe the colours you can see. Are they surprising?
- Notice how your eyes zigzag between the different parts of the picture.
- What is the man doing?
- Draw yourself into this landscape doing an activity you enjoy. Hint: if you’d like to print the image only, right-click on it and select save, then print it.
Paint pictures outdoors at different times of the day to see how the light and colours change.
