Ever since my eldest daughter (who is six years old) saw the stunning artwork “Beauty in the Sky” by Fiona Slater she has been fascinated with it and intrigued about the process behind its creation.
The gorgeous artwork “Beauty in the Sky”:
Over the weekend Miss Six had a go at creating her own Fiona Slater inspired artwork and this is what she came up:
Miss Six decided that she needed to create a vibrant piece of paper first – filled with bright colours and bold patterns. Miss Six used felt pens to do this.
Miss Six then drew a picture on another piece of paper (a picture of a girl holding three balloons and standing under a tree, amongst some flowers with a rabbit nearby). Once the drawing was complete, I used a Stanley Knife to cut out certain pieces (as instructed by Miss Six). To create the land, Miss Six used a heart shaped hole punch to create “grass”.
The finished piece: Rainbow Surprise.
Fiona’s artwork was a wonderful source of inspiration for my daughter and it encouraged her to experiment, explore, discover and create a beautiful piece of art.
