Inspired by Edgar Degas

Day 10

Edgar Degas (1834–1917) was a French artist famous for his paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings. He is especially identified with the subject of dance; more than half of his works depict dancers.

Impressionist Technique to Try – Light and Colour

Day 8

Claude Monet often painted in series, making many pictures of the same subject at different times throughout the day and in different seasons to see how the lighting affected his paintings. Look at these paintings of the Rouen Cathedral and see how the lighting changed the colours Monet used.

Here is my Dandelions project, where I explored light and its effects on one subject – dandelions.

Inspired by Camille Pissarro

Camille Pissarro  (1830-1903) was the Impressionists’ father figure. A decade or so older than most members of the movement, Pissarro contributed to all eight Impressionist exhibitions.

Inspired by Mary Cassatt

Day 5

Mary Stevenson Cassatt (May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926) was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists.

Mary was also interested in photography and framed a lot of her paintings as if they were snapshots.

Mary Cassatt never had children of her own, but she seemed to understand the love between mothers and their babies better than any other artist. Her paintings make you feel like you’re right there, looking in on someone during a special moment. She made ordinary, everyday scenes important.
