Paintings inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe

Scafell have enjoyed completing beautiful and original mixed-media compositions inspired by the American Artist, Georgia O’Keeffe who is famous for her enlarged studies of flowers, dramatic cityscapes and glowing landscapes.  She is recognised as the first American artist to experiment with pure abstraction and is recognised for her contribution to modern art across the world.

Pupils in year 5+6 have used watercolours, pastels, chalks and pencils to create their imaginative studies of flowers.  Each one is a unique interpretation with careful consideration to tone, colour, texture and shape.
