Dean Russo Stage by Stage Drawing of a Dog.
I worked from a photograph of a friend’s dog and produced a simple line drawing in black pencil.
Using white and blue paint I painted the background, you could make this more abstract but you don’t want to distract too much
from the dog his self. Take care not to paint to the edge. I created the shadow under the dog by adding a little black
Staring with yellow I added random patches of colour, then orange.
I then added pink and red
Use a fine paintbrush to add the black outline, unlike my poster paint dog I had a bit of fun with eyes by giving him two different
colours. Am unsure if this works or is just too much colour.
Here are a number of ART Hunts , Children who have worked with Mr Bullock will know how they work , for those who haven’t here is an explanation
Open up ART HUNT IMAGE sheet and the corresponding ART HUNT QUESTIONS sheet , look at each picture in turn and try to match it with one of the clues. This should take about 30 mins then check with ART HUNT ANSWER sheet

RECORDING THE HISTORY OF 2020
We are living through historic times, we are all doing things we have never thought we would. The art projects in this section are designed to make a lasting record of our time in isolation. Just think in years to come you can show this work to your family and tell the story of the events of 2020
