Evidenced in these Form I paintings is the inspiration that pupils drew from the collection of National Geographic Magazines which are part of the Art Department's resources. Some of the pupils used their own personal photos (see the image which depicts two children walking on the beach with their father). The pupils painted on the back of an off-cut of leatherette. The paint took to the reverse of the leatherette very well and the resultant texture (both visual and tactile) of the paintings closely resembles that of a canvas painting. There will be more paintings posted tomorrow.
