On Wednesday, 30th June, I ‘ll be painting a Giraffe with school children from Drayton Park School in North London. Nothing unusual about that other than the fact that we’ll be painting a(3m tall) giraffe on a canvas that’s 3 x 2.7 m (around 10ft each way)in size! Including this one I have done a total of one paintings with these proportions.  A fully grown adult is between 4-6m tall…

The Life-Size project  shows children scale and size in real terms, teaching them about measurements, helping them to work together on a project and most of all have fun doing it. I hope they are as excited as I am nervous!

More about the project in a separate post, together with some pics from the day.

Here’s the sketch that we’ll working form, together with many photos, facts and figures.
