'Sunflower #4' 6x6 pastel ©Karen Margulis
Today's sunflower was inspired by a painting by Henri Matisse. Next week's pastel class will focus on Matisse so I was going through my Matisse books. I love his use of color and so many of his paintings make me smile. I thought it would be fun to choose a painting I like and paint my sunflower using this palette. It was so much fun that I did #5 already! This one is on black Pastelmat card. I am going to order more of this surface. It has a wonderful feel and takes a of of pastel. They go on like butter!
