Hi you all. Today is the last ice-cream menu at Kristin's Summer of Colour, and this time it's melon ice with chocolate chips. Once again, not something that fits into my fave ice cream scheme, but interesting to paint with. I chose Paul Klee as my modern artist this week. His works are influenced by impressionism, cubism and surrealism, and he was a Professor at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf until forced to flee in 1934 after the National Socialists came to power.His work, and that of many others was banned as being *degenerate*. I have chosen an early work of Klee's, from 1914. The background has been painted with red and a touch of brown using a plastic card to scrape the colour onto wet paper, and the outlines drawn free hand with black markers. It was - as usual - fun to make! Shame that the six weeks are over, this has really been a fun event!
And just for fun, a digitally altered version:
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
