Last week in Art, you looked at how L.S. Lowry only used 5 colours in his paintings; black, white, red, yellow and blue (primary colours) and mixed these to produce other colours (secondary colours). 

This week, you will be looking at how Lowry used perspective in his art work to help us understand what was near to him and what was far away. Look at the picture below... 

We use perspective in art work to help the viewer understand what is close and what is far away. By drawing objects bigger or smaller, this helps to create a perspective in a piece of art work.

Now explore drawing buildings using perspective.
