Gloria J Zucaro's "A Week of Matisse"

This past week has been the start of Creative Jumpstart 2016 led by Nathalie Kalbach.  There are 25 instructors to give us videos for projects with a theme.  This week's theme was master painter Matisse. We did projects using techniques taught by our instructors and using Matisse' art as inspiration.  Below are my Matisse inspired pieces and the name of the instructor.  If you want to see the steps for each project I posted them earlier in the week.  The projects that I finished for today are also below.

January 6-My painting done after demo by Joanne Sharp


Steps for the Carmen Sanchez project.
Stage One, using odds & ends from candy wrappers, envelopes, stamps glued down with Gel medium.  I will post this project to Carolyn Dube's site also as using recycled materials is her theme this month.


Stage two.  Carmen showed using a stencil with modeling paste


The final touches were adding torn tissue with matte medium and some acrylic paint in the Matisse color scheme.  I also added some doodling and writing in pen and ink.


I am also posting to Paint Party Friday

have a good week and leave me a comment if you are so inclined,

Gloria

  6. You have been busy Gloria,
    Great course and so many different things to try out.
    I'm thinking of starting an art course in the spring... I've just got to decide where and what!
    It's no easy task when there are so many options.
    You look like your choice is fun and you're really enjoying it.
