TUESDAY, 25 FEBRUARY - FACE 26
Great day today - we managed to get out, it was sunny and we were able to go to the Matisse exhibition at the Atkinson Gallery. This is the first time we have been out for almost two weeks because of minor health problems for my other half. Minor it may have been, but it involved so much time that I have been very slow in visiting other '29 Facers' and commenting, and I do apologise for that because I love visiting. I set aside yesterday afternoon to visit and comment …….. and then we had visitors, welcome visitors, but once again no commenting. I'll be with you asap.
So I doubly enjoyed the Matisse Exhibition and the chance to sketch in the Gallery. Today's Face 26 is drawn on my I-Pad with the Brushes App. Not exact, but I was pleased to manage it using Brushes. I'm sure Matisse would have loved an I-Pad, especially when he was older and in a wheelchair - but probably it would have stopped him doing his cut-outs.
I can't make out whether the poor girl has grown two sets of horns, or is perhaps wearing a helmet, and I don't think her necklace design is going to be stocked in the jewellery section. With her lush, thick plaits and those horns she looks a bit like a Wagner heroine to me.

What wonderful face! Another great work and so original.ReplyDelete

She makes me smile - I expect her to burst into song at any moment :)ReplyDelete
Glad you were able to get - hope things are looking up for you both x
p.s I got an early birthday present today delivered straight from Amazon from my friend. I didn't realise that was what it was and opened it. Craig snatched it off me but not before I saw.... that book Travels Through The Paintbox that you reviewed :D I can't wait to read it!ReplyDelete
you are right - he would have loved the IPad and I am sure he woulf have loved your face!ReplyDelete
Thanks For your visit to my blog and your lovely comments Jez. I appreciate it. I hope all the health problems are okay for you now. We were sick in out house too. My hubby is still sick. This winter has been too long. It's nice to get out...I look forward to getting out. I love this drawing you made. She looks royal. Very lovely!ReplyDelete
Thanks for playing catch up and all your comments over on my blog. I hope your other half is feeling better. Nice to see you were inspired by the Matisse exhibition at the Atkinson. I went along to see that too and planned on doing a cut-out face but I'm afraid I chickened out.ReplyDelete
I'm sure mattise would have loved an ipad ! We are on the same wavelength today Jez. The exhibition sounds a brilliant place for inspiration!ReplyDelete
Some guy is crossing a wall of fire to get to her! I wish I could visit the Matisse exhibition, too.ReplyDelete
Great job with the iPad, by the way...
I too, thought she was going to sing. Thank You for your visit and if you try the iron to eliminate the pucker on watercolors just be sure it is a dry iron and iron the back side of the piece. I let it air dry for several minutes before using the iron.ReplyDelete
I love this Jez! amazing what you can do with an i-pad!!ReplyDelete
Matisse would love for sure. Its good to be here and have a look at your creations.ReplyDelete
