Matisse, master of colour & shape

Starting points for different approaches to visual art can be found in strange places.
Today, we used images taken from a Dulux brochure.

We looked at the work of Matisse and learnt a little about his life and inspirations then using our appropriated images, recreated interiors full of colour and shape.

Finally, we looked at why Matisse introduced black back into his pallet and those who wanted too, added black to their work.

The lovely results are below, followed by examples of Matisse's work.
Well done everyone!
