Here are some photos - from RIL and wikimedia- so copyright free for us to use as inspiration for painting/drawing.
Use any media for this project. I will post around 5 photos and a challenge.

Now for the challenge....:D

The challenge -which you are free to do or not do as you feel-is this:-
Look at a painting by Matisse and analyse his colour scheme in that painting and use those colours to do your paint-along from one of the photos above.
Here are a couple of Matisse's to get you thinking;
That's all for now.;)

Super sketches Sandra! You really captured the kind of sad look on the baboon's face!

Here are a couple of attempts at the seated girl.
6 by 8 ins, watercolours
12 by 16 ins, watercolours
The second image is dull because it was overcast when I took the photo. Its brighter IRL.;)

Hi Janet. The Matisse street is a beautiful riot of Matisse-like colours.

Painted up a storm this morning.
Went through my Matisse book to see if I could find any animals and all he had was a couple of dogs and a weird looking cat...so treated the monkey like a design.
Matisse's paintings are so beautiful they give me a pain in my heart.

Forgot to mention how much I liked your sketches, Sandra. I like what you did with the Buddha and vase and the skeleton looks like a pretty neat dancer....I thought this one was a pretty hard one to intrpret, but you made it fun.

Hi Janet. I love your use of pattern in your designs...so Matissey.
I got a little paperback on Matisse the other week. I love the way he painted women beside plants.
I haven't tried anything Matissey with the photos yet. The month is young yet. ...so hopefully.

'Girl with mangoes'
here's my Matisse-inspired version of the Chinese-hatted girl. Somehow transformed into a Polynesian,;)

Janet, love the bright colors and the Matisse treatment. It's so attractive!
June, yours too have such great colors. She does look more Southern Asian. Very nice touches to fruits and clothing. Your watercolors have a softness to them.

Love it, June....
I like the freedom everyone has with adding and melding the pieces
and there is alot of humor here too
I hope to get something done soon!
