Painting in the Style of Peter Doig

Canoe Lake
Oil on Canvas
Peter Doig

Peter Doig is one of my favorite contemporary painters. He creates dreamlike scenes in his paintings, which evoke memories for the viewer. He also uses a distinct foreground, middle ground, and background in his paintings. The fifth grade students created dreamlike scenes in the style of Peter Doig by painting distinct color bands of foreground, middle ground, and background. The students also learned that cool colors are oftentimes used in the background, and warm colors are used in the foreground.
