  1. Log onto the Internet.
  2. In the Google search engine type the title i.e., ‘Landscape Painting’.
  3. When we have found the right information about your landscape artist and an image we like cut and paste it all into a word document.
  4. Create an interesting heading with the artists name using ‘Word Art’.
  5. Place the image beneath the title (the title is the artists’ name) and then read about the life and works of this artist in depth so that we can produce an interesting and personal study using our own words
  6. Use the format below ( which I have emailed to you) with all of the subtitles, remember do not plagiarize use our own words to show how much we know.
  7. Choose an interesting font to make our piece of work both legible and beautiful.

The artists

The first paragraph informs us about the artist using these points of reference;

  1. The name of the artist, the title of the work and the year it was made.
  2. When the artist was born and the artists’ nationality if known (date of birth and nationality is unknown must be stated if this is the case).



The second paragraph should describe the painting in detail using these points;

  • What colours, objects, patterns or shapes can you see within this painting? Is the tone used light or heavy in places again describe using clear terms like ‘at the top left of the portrait/landscape frame the tones are darkest/warmest/ lightest/coldest…’
  • What materials did they use to make their work?
  • Do we like this painting if so why?
  • Is there a mood to this painting i.e., cold, warm sad, dark, scary, angry, happy etc.


Personal Influence

In our lifetime today we are influenced by the world around us.  We might be interested in the discipline of collage, printmaking, ceramics, painting, pen & ink, sketching, or a popular subject like Landscape, Portrait, The Figure, Flora, Fauna or Still Life.  A particular style might interest us like Surrealism, Cubism, Art Nouveau, Egyptian or Abstract Art etc.


Artist Influence

We need to know how our artist was influenced.  This influence could arrive in a variety of ways.

  1. Some artists have had bad accidents such as Freda Kahlo who was involved in a tram crash where a metal rail speared her leaving her in hospital for years. Her paintings reflect the pain and disability she suffered.
  2. Some artists were influenced by the world around them John Martin and Joseph Wright of Derby lived in a time of great scientific discovery and many of his friends were young scientists. His paintings show many great experiments and the wonder of new discovery is portrayed on the faces of the scientists in his pictures.


Cross curricular

Now research your project title in different genre i.e., music, theatre, film, literature or subject i.e., Science, Geography, History, Math’s etc.

Type in ‘mathematical art’ or ‘history art’ for example and see what you find that’s interesting?
