Landscapes inspired by Egon Schiele

  We started copying a city landscape from an Egon Schiele’s work of art. His technique is black crayon and oil painting on canvan. To imitate the texture we  can draw with black charcoal  on paper, and then fill the spaces with white acrylic, spreading a thick layer of colour.

The graphic work of Matisse, the highest representative of the "Fauve" French, offers a variety of beautiful designs made with very few stylized lines, to which we were inspired to run these small prints. With the students of Year 9 we have been inspired by these designs to engrave a rubbery material called "rubber crepla" and realize the printing plates. The softness of these sheets of rubber … [Read more...]
