An artist I'm not!!

I'm working on the journal for Camille, the latest art doll in the Coolaberation,and her 'story' included the fact that she learned to paint in the style of Matisse. Well, by no stretch of the imagination can it ever be said that I'm a painter, but I did my best! The bottom picture is the actual painting by Matisse (View of Collioure,1906). Above that is my very pitiful attempt! (Yes, you are allowed to laugh now).

I still haven't decided if I'll collage over the top and call it a day.

This is no easy task to take on,MA. I think you've done quite well! I wouldn't do as well I'm sure.

I like your "Matisse". Bear in mind the original was painted in 1906 so has acquired a patina. Just think how your copy will look in a 100 years or so. Go with it - don't cover it.

What are you kidding me? It looks beautiful. Don't you dare take it off your blog - and it better be in the journal when I get Camille back!

I think it turned out very very good! The color and shapes definitely reflect his work, the proportions are good; is there a problem??? ;) Big Wink!
Seriously, you should be quite happy with this!
