Photo Description:
This artwork has been inspired by the story “Augustus and his Smile” written and illustrated by Catherine Rayner. This artwork depicts the scene where Augustus the tiger has ‘scaled the crests of the highest mountains where the snow clouds swirled, making frost patterns in the freezing air.’ The children mixed their own colours using sponges and paint brushes to create the atmospheric sky. They then painted the silhouette of mountains on top. They were given the choice of adding sand to the paint to create added texture and depth.
