Cattail Silhouettes – Charles Tunnicliffe

IMG_0898 IMG_0899 IMG_0901 IMG_0906

Students were inspired by Charles Tunnicliffe, an artist from England who was born in 1901. Through the course of his career he was an illustrator, freelance commercial artist and painter. His favourite subjects were inspired by the beauty of the nature surrounding his rural upbringing.

We used warm and cool coloured chalk pastels to create our background. Students did a fantastic job blending their colours and adding waves to the water. To create the cattails we used old gift cards and used a stamping technique to make the stems and a scraping technique for the tops.
