  • Lawrence Stephen Lowry was famous for his industrial prints. To create his images, Lowry only used black, white, red, yellow and blue paints. The portrait of Anne is a famous painting created by Lowry. In this clip the presenter has a go at recreating this picture using crayons and strips of paper. Lowry started with a sketch, then applied his background paint, chose his five colours and used card to draw lines and his hands, paintbrushes and sticks to create the finished work. Following instructions is important. You must make sure you know all the essential things you need before you start. This clip has subtitles available in Flash.
