Frances Hatch

Frances Hatch is an artist who visited Antarctica. Her web page takes you through her art journey: before her visit, her sketchbook and her final pieces. She often uses paint, but achieves some really interesting textures by painting over pieces of card, scrunched up paper, adding sand to paint etc. She also collages on top of her paintwork; I saw some shiny blue foil on one piece of her artwork.


This week I would like you to experiment with her techniques and then use them in a final artwork of your own. It could be about Antarctica or you could use a scene closer to home that you can see eg. your garden.
