Project: Derain’s Portrait of Matisse
Lecture no. 31 from the course: The Complete Painter: Lessons from the Masters
Taught by Professor David Brody | 15 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
In this lesson, you’ll paint a study based on André Derain’s iconic 1905 portrait of his friend Henri Matisse, using highly saturated color that modulates from light to dark and warm to cool as you move around the head. In copying Derain’s style, you’ll use hue, value, and brush marks to make sure the head is the focus of the piece.
