Matisse and Picasso Analysis

 In Room 20 we had to study two artist by the names of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. We then had to analyse two of their famous artworks Picasso's A Weeping Woman and Matisse's A Woman With A Hat. Picasso is a Cubist artist, which means that in the majority of his painting he included different perspectives and often geometric shapes. Matisse's style on the other hand is Fauvism, meant he paints with unrealistic colours.

Picasso was born on October the 25th 1881 and then later died in April 8th 1973 at an old age of 92 and Matisse was born on December 31st 1869 dying on the 3rd of November 1954 at a old age of 84. Both artist were outstanding but they each had different types of art compared to each other. Picasso in most of his artwork had more than one perspective. Matisse always had more than one unrealistic colour in his artworks.

The themes of the art were all so different Picasso had painted the woman in a sad way due to there being a spanish civil war going on which resolved in Picasso's painting ‘Guernica’. Picasso’s ‘A Weeping Woman’ showed how sad she was due to all of the war going on in Spain. While Matisse’s ‘A Woman With a Hat’ based on an expressionless painting. He was more concerned about trying out different colours, and trying out a different painting style.

The two, have both different colours too it. Matisse used unrealistic colours in his painting but whenever it came to shading he always used some other colour to show it instead of just making a colour darker to match it. Picasso when he painted he used shades of yellow and he didn’t use shading all that much.

Picasso used dark black outlines, while Matisse used rough textures some clear outlines. Picasso used Mostly sharp jagged lines, and distorted perspectives. While Matisse on the other hand used many blurred out and they were smudged as well.

What I have summarised from all of this is that Matisse and Picasso are both different What I have summarised from all of this is that Matisse and Picasso are both different painters in nearly every way. They both had different themes, to it and the shading was completely different. An with all of this data I have concluded that they were both weird artist’s and that could barely ever paint a proper portrait without having either different perspectives or oddly coloured people. So to me the only thing I can say that compares them completely is that they are both weird people.

My Les Twins Reflection

In extension we were given a task to research a person to do a Bio on them. It wasn't all that hard at first we had to get some information on them and then we had to put together a presentation, unfortunately I never finished my presentation which was suppose to be 2 minutes i only ended up with a 16sec presentation.

But with all the information I gathered on the Les Twins was important I think that I had to more or less revolve around the putting everything together part of it. Next time I should make the effort to actually do the things that I know that I have to get finished and not muck around. So for our next task gien im going to put all my time into my project.

What I have concluded is that the Les Twins are a good duo together and that they took a lot of time into doing things that they wanted to achieve and to get where they are now. It might of taken some time but you have to be patient because you don't become famous in one day. The End

My Mihimihi!!!

Show Not Tell - Raining

As I quietly walked through the streets, water was all over the ground. Puddles were everywhere with leaves in them like fallen soldiers. Water poured all over my face dropping off the tip of leaves and onto my hair. The streets were quiet and the sun was still arising, hazy through the mist while rain still fell like being poured out of a watering can. It was cold as Ice but as smooth as silk on my a skin.

Vincent Van Gogh - Starry Night

Starry Night was painted by the world famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. This is a very beautiful artwork. It is not so much a bright coloured picture, it can almost predict that he was painting at night time. In this painting the technique he used had got to be just little strokes and not just dragging the paintbrush across the paper, It looks like he was painting over a town during the night as people slept. He always used a different variety of colour it was either bright colours or dark colours.

Daniella Hulmes

When Daniella Hulmes was growing up she wanted to an artist but her parents, being traditional, refused, due to it not being a well paying job. They wanted her to do something else instead of that, so she decided to become a nurse. As a nurse she was always being creative and tried her hand in fashion design followed by pottery.

While nursing she also met her husband Jamie Hulmes and immigrated to New Zealand from Holland. A short while after she met her husband Jaime Hulmes. They settled down together and not so long afterwards Daniella started saying that she wanted this artwork and that artwork , so her husband told her to paint it herself and he brought her a easel and some paint and enrolled her into a art class.

She excelled during art classes. While she was in her art classes she encountered many art styles and than she soon realised that realistic art isn’t her type of artwork. She was interested in the texture of depth of colours She was one of the finalist Waitakare Licensing Trust Awards Norsewear Art Awards, Goldwater Art awards and many more. In 2007 she was commissioned to create a large triptych by the large honourable Governor General Anand Satyanand, to be given as a gift from NZ to the Tokelau Islands.

Daniella Hulmes - Abundance

Daniella Hulmes was the artist of the painting ‘Ambudance’. Ambudane is a bright piece of art, with its vibrant colours and 3D shading. In this artwork the colours are very vibrant and are eye catching. This resembles the islands also most of her artwork was inspired by her husbands culture.
