After studying David Hockney’s painting of Saltaire, we visited the village for ourselves. We loved seeing the real painting and we were shocked at how large it was. We then found all the features of the painting in real life and compared them to how they look in the picture. We decided David Hockney certainly uses more exciting colours than the ones we saw!
We we enjoyed exploring the historic village; drawing the bandstand, walking the cobbled streets and Helen even found her own road-Helen Street!
