Painting a Matisse!

The great impressionist painter Henri Matisse painted "Head of a Woman" in 1916 using oil on canvas. In the workshop session I facilitated, the students start by drawing the basic outline before painting using watercolor pencils on watercolor paper.

. . . and here are the students works done in an hour and a half session:

Calia, age 8

Claire, age 8

Chantrice, age 10

Caryn, age 6

and by my special student Ignacio:

A fun way of studying and appreciating a great master work!
