November 28th Colour Art

Today’s inspiration is my all time favourite artist, Henri Matisse (1869-1954).

Matisse first came to my attention through his Fauve Art paintings, which are wonderful works, but what really inspires me about his art is his textile designs.

What impresses me is how much he could achieve with simple shapes and a limited colour palette.

Sadly, I haven’t been able to provide a reproduction as they are still within copyright. I wonder if you can see some of his style, even so, in my final picture.

Thanks for reading.
