In the footsteps of Michelangelo

As part of an art project, our teacher told us about the amazing Sistine Chapel in Rome and how Michelangelo painted it. He had to lie on his back and work by candlelight! We decided to try it out and see how easy it would be. So we attached paper to the underneath of our desks and lay on the floor to do our paintings. We were lucky enough to have daylight to work by but it was still absolutely exhausting!painting-overhead-2 painting-overhead-3 painting-overhead
