This painting was made in 1796 by George Romeny. It is called The Four Friends. He makes his drawings dark not light. There is also a statue in the this picture next to a man drawing or writing in his notebook. I liked it because all of the people were looking different ways. George Romeny was born in 1734 in England, he lived down the road from Abbot Hall Art Gallery. His painting of the four friends made me feel like I’m sitting in a boat reading. This painting is over 200 years old! George Romney died in 1802, he was 68 when he died.

I like the painting because it is colourful and I like the people because they are decorated in the picture. I also like the frame because of the colour and I like the pictures because of the decorations they put on. And all these pictures are made by George Romeny and he was a good artist. George was born in 1734 he died in 1802.

I liked this picture because I think they were discussing something. This painting was painted in 1796 by George Romeny and he only lived down the road. George Romney was born in England in 1734. In the painting there were a diary and a statue.

The most best bit in the painting to me is the colours. In the corner of the painting was a statue. The painting was a by George Romney. There are lots of dull colours. What I don’t like about the picture is the man that looks at you!

I like the colours because I like dark colours. I do not like it because one of the men looks evil. Some things that I spotted was a diary and a statue. The painting was by George Romney.

The Great Picture was from 1646. I liked it because it is a family picture and instruments are in there. I don’t like it because they are not happy. The woman is about 7 or 8 in the first part and in the second part she is 54. The middle one are her brothers and her mum and dad. Did you know they had to take a window out to get it in. The picture is a triptych.

Did you know that this picture is from 1646? I like the painting because the family is together. I like the Great Picture because it has lots of musical instruments in it. I didn’t like the bugs on the collar. The painting was first in a castle. Did you know that the Great Picture is a triptych? They look happy but not having fun. I don’t like it because the lady looks 92 but is 54. Did you know they had to take a window out to get the painting in the gallery.
