Down the hills to Berry’s Bay

Roland Wakelin painted this view of Berry’s Bay outdoors so he could look at the effect of light and colour in the landscape.

  • Look at the flecks of light on the grass. Describe the colours you can see. Are they surprising?
  • Notice how your eyes zigzag between the different parts of the picture.
  • What is the man doing?
  • Draw yourself into this landscape doing an activity you enjoy. Hint: if you’d like to print the image only, right-click on it and select save, then print it.
