Over the next few weeks we will be studying the painting 'Tiger in a tropical storm' By Henri Rousseau.
We are going to be re-creating our own piece of art inspired by The Tiger In A Storm.
Have a look at the picture and think about these questions:
What can you see?
Where is it set?
What can you see in the background?
What animal is in the picture?
What is the animal doing?
What could it be running from?
How do you think the Tiger feels from his facial expression?
What colours can you see?
What can you see in the sky?
The first thing you need to do is create the background for your picture. What colours can you see in the background? The sky is stormy, so you might want to paint or colour in your background grey.
Whilst that is drawing, have a go at drawing a tiger. You can use this video tutorial to help you.
You might want to have more than one attempt. Once you are happy with your drawing, you can add colour to your tiger. What colours do you think you'll need to use?
Don't forget to add stripes and white sharp teeth!
Once your background is dry, you can cut around your tiger and stick it onto the background!
We will be continuing the rest of our pictures next week!
