Matisse Week!

A week creating in the style of Matisse..

Thanks to

I started out with....

The girls....
and research of course!

Creative Jumpstart 2016 is an on line workshop that delivers a 
a variety of talented artists giving their interpretation of a 
master artists work.  When I signed up in December I didn't 
know what to expect, was I pleasantly surprised when the theme
was revealed!  I love looking at artists work and interpreting, & 
creating in that style.  Its a great way to learn new techniques and
revisit old ones!  Good thing the videos for the workshop are 
available to the student for a while.... its definitely going to take me 
time to go through all the great work!

So here's my start, with a Matisse inspired journal page..
inspired by Matisse, and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's Lesson.

More to Come!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

    It was great, over his shoulder to see you while painting. I believe, that I have just learned a little ... interesting that you started with Neocolors, these colors i also love so much because they are so versatile.
    Thank you very much for this insight! Ulrike
