Shannon‘s (S2) sketchpad is full of pastel drawings of various themes. Below I have added some of my favourite pages from the book. It’s difficult for most pupils to work on a large scale, so it is refreshing to see these large colourful images.
The parrot, Shannon’s own favourite image from the sketchpad, is marvelously applied. It shines with colour, it’s highlighted tones dazzle the eye. The background pattern of canopy leaves is purposefully flat, though it works as a discrete backdrop to the tropical bird. Great work.
