Matisse – Art Project 2

The art curriculum we are using had several art pieces to do by Henri Matisse.  This one was inspired from his Icarus cutout.  We decided to use paint instead of paper for the main part of the picture.

Firstly we drew round Anna to get the rough outline of our painting.

Next we changed the shape so it was more fluid and similar to the original then started painting it in the same colours he did his cutouts from.

Next we cut out random stars and stuck them on.  Elsa painted on the heart.

Final painting.  This turned out really well.  The girls enjoyed doing it, it was lovely to spend time outside in the sunshine.
