Paintings inspired by Casper David Friedrich

Paintings inspired by Casper David Friedrich.

We discussed Friedrich's motivation, wanting to show that the spiritual or divine could be found in nature. He often painted figures with their backs to the viewer admiring the magnificent natural scene in front of them.

We painted colour gradations, mixing and blending colours for the landscape.
Each student worked on one paper and one canvas background.

Idea found on artescoula blog.

We traced enlarged silhouettes from photocopies of Casper David Friedrich paintings, stencils and the students own designs.
Then painted the silhouettes and background details
