From this we then went back in our same groups as the day before and had to work together to recreate the guernica using our manifesto of sustainability of the environment. Using black and white and one colour. We followed the pattern of what the original guernica focal points were. We used our manifesto and as a group came up with ideas on how we were going to show our manifesto as a Guernica piece. We decided to stay with the three parts and use a Factory on fire on the right hand side showing it inside and outside like the original. We decided the light in Guernica in the middle at the top with be the sun and the fire and bird going towards it. In the middle there will be dead and burning trees with a diving horse. On the left hand side there will be a business cat to show the idea of a consumer. We will be using black and white paint and the orange for fire and sun.
