The Great Wave of Hokusai


“I have been in love with painting ever since I became conscious of it at the age of six.”

Katsushika Hokusai

Today we were very busy creating our own renditions of the famous woodblock print, The Great Wave, by Hokusai.  Salt and watercolours were used for the background and then the students carved their very own waves and printed them over the background. Take a look:

You can almost feel the salt spray on your face as the waves crash down.

We had a great time…
