What can we learn from looking at Bruno Bobak’s Flood, Waterloo Row?

Let’s look

Take your time. Look carefully. Where do your eyes go first? Then where? Take in as many details as you can.

Let’s describe

What time of year is it?  What time of day is it? How would you describe the atmosphere in the painting? What visual elements support your ideas?

Encourage students to ask questions. What visual elements in the artwork prompt the questions asked?

Let’s imagine

If you were to continue or extend this painting to the left and to the right, what would you include?  Why?
