“I want the viewer to look – relate and then look again.”
Students created their own autumn reflections in our class. Inspired by a local artist, Jamie MacLean who’s oil landscapes are about capturing the emotional energy and enjoyment from being outside. He connects with the viewer through the use of strong colours, and shadows. His art conveys his enjoyment and awe of the rugged outdoors by using motifs such as crashing waves, luminescent birches, mossy rocks, and wind-whipped leaves.
Bright blue skies and colourful foliage inspired us and we used a variety of art materials to capture the energy of this time of year.
