Beautiful Banyan Trees by Beech Class

In art, we have been looking closely at Banyan Trees.  Banyan Trees have long roots and branches and a single tree can spread over a large area.  We have even seen a picture of a restaurant built amongst the branches of a Banyan Tree!

After looking at lots of pictures of Banyan Trees, we then sketched our own making sure the branches overlapped to form lots of sections.  We then painted the trunk using black paint.  When that had dried, we coloured in each section by carefully blending oil pastels.   

The pictures are amazing!
