After we practised mixing colours we tried painting using the watercolour technique. We learned how to use a little bit of paint and more water to make areas look lighter. You have to put light colour first when you use watercolour paints.

I have also painted a picture of the Worm's Head at Rhosilli in Wales where we went on holiday. We walked quite a long way across to the island and had to hurry back before the tide cut us off. We saw an amazing sunset. I used the photograph to remind me what the scene looked like.


Today we practised mixing colours and learned about the colour wheel. Primary colours are red, blue and yellow. Secondary colours are green, orange and purple and are mixed from primary colours. Tertiary colours are mixed from secondary and primary colours.
