In Room 21 our lovely teacher Mrs Lagitupu has set us a task to compare and contrast artworks by Pablo Picasso ‘The weeping woman’ and by Daniela Hulme ‘A lazy day in paradise’. Picasso was famous for Cubism and Daniella Hulme was famous for her contemporary art.

‘The weeping woman’ has jagged lines and shapes. Picasso used bright colors like yellow and white. His technique he used was Cubism which means looking at something from different perspectives or angles.

Daniela Hulme was inspired by her husband (Samoan) so she painted art about the tropical islands or pacific people. ‘A lazy day in paradise’ is not really jagged
but curved and round. She used lining up and shape really well because you can't really see any mistakes.

Well the two paintings are colorful so that's one similarity  and another thing is that they are both paintings. The differences about these paintings is that Picasso’s painting ‘The weeping woman’ doesn't look realistic like all the details on a real face.

Daniela hulme and Picasso are really fantastic artists and we all know that if they battle to produce their best painting it would be hard to choose which would win. here is the link picasso and Daniela hulme

contrast two artworks matisse and van gogh

In Room 21 our teacher has set a task to compare and contrast the two different paintings of two famous artists. We had to look at Van Goghs ‘Sunflowers’ and Matisse's ‘La Musique’. Matisse’s art style is Fauvism and Van Gogh was famous for Expressionism.

First I looked at Van Gogh's painting. The sunflowers look pale and blurry but I can see texture.The colors he used was a bit of orange, brown and lots of yellow. What I noticed was that the leaves looked like they were swaying and looked old. It looks like there are two different kinds of flowers.

The second painting ‘La Musique’ has a lot of colors which stand out and makes it colorful. I am not sure about the two ladies but I think they are playing instruments. One lady is playing the guitar. The background looks like they are on a deck with palm leaves hanging over.

The two paintings are different because ‘Sunflowers’ has plain colors and the ‘La Musique’ has more bright colors. One thing that is the same about them is that they are both paintings. Another thing is that they both have is the link henry Matisse van gogh

intermediate school art rotation

This term we are learning about different artists in each class like Monet. His technique is by panting little strokes and while painting always mix colours while you go. Once you have finished your painting it will be fantastic. So what I did was I drew a outline of the nrl warriors team logo and then I painted using the technique the colours I used was black and red water based paint and came out perfect. what I learned about monet was that he was born in 1840 in paris,france
and spent 10 years painting his water garden and died at the age of 86.

The next session was with Mr barks he was teaching us how to paint  picasso style. This technique is to draw half a face and then draw a eye across the other but change the  direction it's facing. Here’s another way of the picasso technique demonstrating with lips draw half of the mouth on the front view and draw the other half from the side view. I learn that picasso was born in malaga,spain,on the 25th day of october,1881.

Van Gogh was a really cool and talented artist but he had a older brother who died when he was born and Mr Gogh was really close friends with Paul Gauguin another artist and that he cut his ear off and gave it to his girl friend. His technique is to get texture by little strokes that stand out like it looks 3D.

I think that matisse was a really great artist and that his art was really fantastic. I found out that he made more than 50 bronze sculptures and was a french artist. matisse was born in 1869 and died on november 3th 1954. His technique is called les fauves in english is wild beast his technique is to paint little dots for impressive effect.
