At Julia’s Monday morning Drawing Class, organised by Enjoy Learning, we are looking as different artists and then producing work in their style. For the last couple of weeks we’ve been looking at Cezanne and using oil pastels. I enjoyed copying one of Cezanne’s landscapes, but my own landscape, a kasbah in Morocco, was less successful.
Today we copied some of Monet’s landscapes in soft pastels. I chose his Poplars from 1891. This version that I’ve found on the interweb thingy is a lot brighter and with a lot more reds and purples in the bushes than the reproduction handed out by Julia:
and finally the poplars themselves.
I was happy with my completed piece – at least until I saw the above ‘original’ on the interweb! My piece should have been much cleaner and brighter. Here’s Julia with the group’s work at the Show and Tell. My piece is in the middle of the top row.
