warm and cool

Today we experimented with warm and cool colours. 

Warm colors are based on yellows, oranges, browns and reds

Cool colors are based on blues, greens, and purples. 

We talked about how certain colours make you feel, and how they are used to describe things. E.g. Red is a hot colour, found in fire, the sun, fire engines or can describe someone feeling angry.
Blue is a cool colour, like the ocean, and can make you feel calm, or used to describe someone who is sad. 

We looked around and found warm and cool colours around the house and garden. Here are some of his paintings using the different colour palettes
