Springtime colour hunt from Fitzwilliam Museum Learning on Vimeo.

You will need 

Coloured pens and pencils 

Step 1

Make a chart of all the colours you can find in the painting.

Step 2

Now see if you can match things with your colours.
You could go outside for some fresh air!

Step 3

Can you name the colours that you find?
Perhaps you could make up your own names? e.g. snail brown, highlighter yellow or blossom white.

Step 4

Can you lay them in a colour wheel? 
Do you know which ones are primary and which ones are secondary colours?
