This week we have been studying the artwork of famous American painter Wayne Thiebaud. He is famous for his colourful paintings of popular items; he especially liked painting food.
The style of art he creates is called realism and he was able to make his paintings come to life through his use of shading to make the pictures appear 3D.
We chose to try out our own art work based on his famous cake paintings. We used chalk pastels in vivid colours to capture the pop art style he used in the 60s. We used black and white pastels to shade light and dark.
This is the original painting that inspired out work
And here our some of our own cake pictures; we think we did an excellent job! Good enough to eat!
