Leeds by Gaslight

This week we have unleashed our inner artist. We have done detailed pencil drawings of some of the landmark buildings in Leeds, all of which were designed by an architect called Cuthbert Broderick.  Did you know that he won a competition to design the Town Hall?

Then we experimented with pastels to create the atmosphere of an Atkinson Grimshaw painting. This Leeds artist particularly liked to paint scenes with unusual lighting, for instance shop windows at dusk.

Finally, Eric was disappointed that Atkinson Grimshaw didn’t paint any of Cuthbert’s buildings, so we drew the building outline and used pastels to create a similar effect. We hope you like our efforts!

  1. These are lovely drawings 2SB, there are clearly some budding artists amongst you! Chloe your Grandparents were very impressed with your drawing of the Corn Exchange – on the class trip today I was able to see how accurate your drawing was!
