Year 9 inspired by artist Pete Gilbert
Year 9 students have been creating multi-media pieces inspired by the work of New Forest artist Pete Gilbert.
Gilbert paints whimsical landscapes in his studio in the middle of the forest and creates amazing works all year long using watercolours, oils, and pastels. He is a self-made artist who paints mainly scenes from the New Forest and the Dorset coast. Being immersed in the forest helps him paint the phases of nature. In this case, students drew the trees using wax crayons and then dabbled their paintbrushes in watercolours to create transparency and texture in contrast with the darkness of the trees.
They came out beautifully and each one is so unique.
