Blending and shading

This week Year 4 have been exploring colours and blending in art. Using chalk pastels we mixed pairs of primary colours to create secondary colours and added white and black to create tints and shades. We also practiced making value scales using two different techniques: the first was using our fingers to blend a solid colour so that it became increasingly lighter and the second was adding black and white to opposites ends of a colour and blending them toward the centre to create a scale from dark to light.
