Mini Matisse Painting

Mini-Matisse-661x1024Matisse was a French artist, known for his use of color and organic shapes. You can see his painting that inspired me HERE

1. Miniature canvases (3″x3″) and easels are available at Aaron Brothers stores and jerrysartarama online. Use a pencil to lightly draw lines on the canvas in the style of any Mondrain painting. 

2. Using Sharpie Brush Tip Markers, color the light colors first. Fill in the black last as the markers color so well they tend to smear if bumped together.

3. Spray with a clear gloss to make all the colors pop, and then give someone special an original masterpiece for the holidays!
