As part of our topic on Japan, volcanoes and earthquakes, we have been studying Hokusai’s, ‘The Great Wave’. We have spent time sketching Hokusai’s ‘The Great Wave’ and have recreated our own versions. Hokusai’s painting is a woodblock print. However, ours have been completed in watercolour, which has allowed us to paint in detail. A detailed woodblock print is slightly beyond the art cupboards capabilities!
