From a photo of a simple landscape, I tried to inspire my paintings in the style of Kandinsky. He painted many landscapes, where it is recognizable the style that characterizes his abstract painting. We can see the lines which surround the stylized shapes of the landscape, and the colors that are not realistic. You could do this lesson with students year 8 and 9, but also with younger pupils! The most difficult step for children is to stylize the landscape.
Subsequently I colored shapes with acrylic colors, with a large paintbrush, without copying any colors in the photos, but observing the light and dark areas. I filled the areas with acrylic colors, without cover the oil pastels lines.
