In our art lessons we looked at images showing groups of friends. We studied the way the artists showed the relationship of the people in the portraits or photographs. We took photographs of each other posing with our friends and then we began work on our portraits.

First we used a blue colour wash for the background. Then we used sketching pencils to draw a picture of a group of our friends. We then used water colours and oil pastels to build layers of colour and add details.

We were very pleased with the results.
