Juan Gris, Breakfast. In this composition, I really like how Gris has made it have a torn-up paper effect. The different shapes used make the composition look interesting and is really eye catching. The different colours used also make different aspects of the composition stand out.

The Athenaeum - Breakfast (Juan Gris - )

Pablo Picasso ‘Still Life of Pitcher, Fruit and Flowers’. I really like Picasso's style of using bright colours in this composition. In my mixed media composition I would like to use my oil pastels so that the colours stand out and I will do this by pressing hard with them. He has also used a variety of colours and this has inspired me to use different fruit and vegetables so I can use many colours in my composition. A duller colour has been used in the background and I would like to do this…

LOVE SPAIN - Pablo Picasso ‘Still Life of Pitcher, Fruit and...

Still Life- Samuel Peploe. This painting is of a jug, a dish with fruit in it and a mug. The backdrop of the painting is very eye catching as it is so patterned. Bright and bold colours are used- making a happy atmosphere. The angular lines give the painting an Art Deco look. Not a lot of tone is used around the fruits so this makes them look slightly flat. There is tone used on other objects such as wine bottle. The objects look more cartoon than realistic because of the sharp, angular…

Still Life with Tulips- Samuel Peploe. This painting consists of tulips, a table and a vase. There are dark colours used and this creates a dark atmosphere. The tulips are scattered on the table which makes them look like they are uncared for, also creating a dark atmosphere. Peploe has used a variety of tones and colours-some dark and some light. The contrast between the yellow tulips and the brown table shows that the tulips are alive and this gives the painting a slightly happy mood.

georges braque oil pastel - George's Braque has used the oil pastels very brightly and thickly in this composition to make the objects stand out. I similarly I have done this in my mixed media composition to make it very bright and eye catching.

henri matisse still life - in this painting, Matisse has put a very bright yellow lemon against a white cloth to make the lemon stand out. I have taken this idea and have put it into my mixed media composition by putting very bright colours against a slightly paler background.

Stocks in a White Vase-George Leslie Hunter. This painting is very brightly coloured which creates a cheerful atmosphere. Bright colours are used for the flowers and this contrasts well with the curtain in the background. Tones are used to make the objects look realistic. Shadows are used well for the fruit to make them look realistic. The darkness of the table contrasts with the brightly coloured fruit and flowers.

George Leslie Hunter-Still Life with Purple Flowers and Apples. This painting is of a vase of flowers with two apples beside it. The colours of the backdrop and the table are dark so this gives the painting a dull atmosphere. The flowers look like they are drooping so this also gives the painting a dull atmosphere. The paint is applied very thickly and roughy, giving the painting an overall rough look. The shadows under the apples and the vase are painted on blotchy so this makes these…

Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell-Man with Orange. This painting is of a man holding an orange. Bright and bold colours are used and this makes the painting very eye-catching. The lines used are very simple, such as the straight lines in the wall behind the man, but they are also very eye-catching because they are also bold, like the colours used. A variety of tones have been used to make the objects look real, such as the plant. The paint has been applied smoothly but the shadows and tones…
