I have been home the last few days with something "flu-like". I had signed up for Creative Jumpstart 2016 led by Nathalie Kalbach and a weekly challenge with Roberta Laliberte using palette color prompts.
I used the colors in Roberta's palette and used the theme from Jumpstart.
Our first of 25 videos on Jumpstart was by Rae Missigman. She did a floral in the style of Matisse. We were to do our own painting in his style also.
Here are my step-by-steps
A Matisse Original Painting

Journal page-cover with Liquitex Matte medium, let dry
Make drawing with black Sharpie
Next Rae had added white paint over everything and then scraped it off with a card. I was too chicken! My paper is one of those woven types, I thought it would rip. So I covered it with waxed paper. I did not like it at all, as I am a bright color high contrast painter! But it did add texture which I liked by the end.
Covered with wax paper and matte medium! I redrew around the shapes with a scripto pen.
So I repainted it, using the acrylic paints with some Dr. Martin Inks added for fun!
After that dried I did some outlines in white/black scripto and called it a day!
Stay well and come back soon!
