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. When acrylic is dry we can colour the landscape with watercolor, moping the colour with a tissue .

We can also drew inspiration from an our own landscape’s photograph, and painting it in the style of Schiele. Here an example from a my own photograph of Pembroke:

Brilliant! I love Shiele's work but was actually only familiar with his figurative works. What an amazing technique you shared- can't wait to try it!!!
Beautiful artwork.Your students interpreted his work brilliantly.
Thanks! I loved this post and used it as the inspiration for one of my projects. Please see my post!http://minimatisse.blogspot.com/2012/07/two-point-perspective-buildings.html
Thank you for sharing this lovely project! This is a great technique to know.
Thank you Cindy for your comment! Nice to meet you! 🙂
What a great lesson and cool technique! Is that white acrylic paint straight from the bottle or did you thin it? Thank you so much for sharing!
