With students of grade9 (classi terze) we studied the Romantic Painters of 19th-Century, like Turner, Delacroix, Gericault and Friedrich. After the Romanticism lesson we painted some pictures inspired by Friedrich’s works of art with acrylic colours. We applied the same method as previous painting (Silhouette on colorful gradations) but with different color scales for the figures.
