Second in my series of master artists’ paintings for the background. A Henri Matisse – “Dishes and Fruit“, dated 1901. Love the colors and the bold brushstrokes. I tried to integrate Matisse’s painting with my apricots – using the fruit (a green apple or pear?) painted more three dimensional. The items I tried not to develop too much. Maybe I should had glazed them over with a grayish colors.
I wondered if I should titled this just “The Three Apricots”? Or can I title my painting, “The Three Apricots with a Matisse”? Would that be a violation using Matisse’s name?
