Copy of Matisse’s Self Portrait 1918
Feb 8, 2007: The chosen Master for the months of Jan and Feb ’07 over at WetCanvas! is Henri Matisse. I have been enjoying this project too especially all the lovely colours that I’m getting to use. My first 3 attempts are digital. Oils in Art Rage 2. As in the past, this post will get updated with all further attempts too. I’m hoping to make the next one of one of his still life paintings.

Update : Feb 28, 2007 : Just managed to squeeze in the last one for this MOM. I have tried to copy one more of Matisse’s Self Portraits. This one is dated 1918 and you can see the original here. This MOM thread too will remain open and we can continue to post but I wanted to meet the commitment I had made to myself to make at least one that was not digital. This one is made with oil pastels on the reverse side of a 8 X 10 mount board. It’s still WIP and I’ll be visiting the Oil Pastels sub forum for some tips and help to finish it.
