Grade 7 – Pierneef landscapes

Hendrik Pierneef was an old master of South African art who has fallen into some disrepute in recent years. I thought the grade 7s would appreciate his interesting way of stylizing the landscape so that it almost looked cartoony though.

The learners began by drawing the basic shapes of their landscape using pencil. They then took a black crayon to go over the pencil lines with. Finally they used water colour paints to add colour to their landscapes!
