I took the wheel off the front of my bike and literally squeezed it into the back of my little car! I should have cycled to the school but I had so many other things to take with me that day – it was quite impossible.
Together with the children we moved all the tables to create a circle around the standing bike.
For demonstration, I drew the bike with one line which most impressed the kids. Then it was their turn to draw the contours of the bike.
We spoke about use of space on the page, the various parts of the bike and getting in the details.
What you don’t see is the finished product – watercolour patches in all colours in the background – beautiful!
