Comparing and contrating

We have been asked to look at the similarities and differences between the two paintings. One painting which is called ‘La Musique’ is by Henri Matisse, the other is Sunflowers by Van Gogh. The style that Van Gogh uses is Expressionism and the style that Matisse uses is Fauvism.

When I looked at the Sunflowers, they look really dull and droopy. The colours that he used are yellow, brown, orange, black and green, he also mixed some colours. The type of technique that he uses is short vertical strokes.

When I look at the painting ‘La Musique’, it reminds me of practicing to play the guitar and me little cousin listening. The colours the he used is green, red, brown, yellow, white, blue and black. The technique that he used is ‘Les Fauves’

If I was to look at the similarities and differences between the two paintings, I would say that the only common thing that has been used in them both is the colour yellow. They both have plant either in the background or as the picture.

Matisse and Van Gogh are very famous artists, however they both have wonderful paintings and I hope one day, I will be famous artist like them.
