We began the day with a lecture on Colurists and shown various slides of inspirational artists. Matisse popped up, "the master of colour" and I found this image Le Rifain assis (Seated Riffian) 1912/13 as a good example of his pallet
Raoul Dufy was the key painter that stuck out for me. I liked his use of colour and line to add depth and distinction. Very illustrative and good style for use in textiles

Toulouse Lautrec and his use of coloured paper as a background is interesting. You can work much more with colour on top then. I might apply this when I do some life drawing...?
Then we approached our brief:
