Life Drawing Final

The assignment was to "clothe" one of our class  models and add background.  We could take inspiration from an artist.  I hope it is obvious I chose Matisse.

This image is one of the Matisse odalisques with the face of our model. The purple and white striped robed is ubiquitous in Matisse paintings of women. I need to reduce the width of the painting so I could work more easily on my board. I changed the position of the left arm and modernized the hair style.

Below is the actual image called Seated Odalisque, 1926.  It can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
