The other weekend I visited the exhibition of Matisse at the National Gallery of Denmark together with my husband. The focus of the exhibition was on the process of the famous french artist. Henri Matisse remained innovative and curious through his carrier. He tried different approaches and styles, and I found it interesting to see the development in his art - he painted often same motives, cutting details, experimenting with light, colors, shadows ... focusing on what he saw being the essential.
I enjoyed being in the beautiful National Gallery - I loved especially the light and the high ceilings.
Knowing the curious approach of Matisse,
I assume he wouldn't mind me
trying to find my own version of his famous work
"Interior in Yellow and Blue.
I have diminished the saturation,
laid the following textures from Kim Klassen:
Leslie, Laura, Stampedright 1 & 2,
and brushed the fruit, the white on
the round table and
parts of the lilac table.
The sun was setting down over the Rosenborg Castle,
as we stood outside at the top of the stairs of the National Gallery.
